20 Hours Early Childhood Education (ECE) FREE

We offer 20 Hours of ECE FREE per week to all 3, 4 and 5 year old children.

This means that your child can receive up to 20 hours a week (maximum six hours a day) of early childhood education (ECE) hours funded by the Ministry of Education regardless of family income, immigration status or any other reason.

The 20 Hours ECE Government scheme is designed to reduce cost barriers so more children can benefit from early childhood education.
