Together for Twos
Together for Twos – did you know that your two year old could be entitled to 15 hours of free early learning a week?
This could be with a registered childminder or a Children’s Centre, crèche, local nursery or pre-school playgroup. All of these early learning places have qualified staff who are trained to look after children. They are inspected by Ofsted and have been graded by Ofsted as providing good or outstanding learning experiences for children.
Research has shown that good quality early learning and care can expand children’s development especially in communication and language, developing their physical skills and socialising with other children and making friends.
Taking a Together for Twos place also helps families, as you can have time for yourself and take advantage of the activities and courses run at your local Children’s Centre, for example, courses such as preparing to go back to work, finding out more about child development and first aid.
Currently, free early learning places are not available for all families. If you are receiving benefits or on a low income, then you maybe entitled.
To find out more about a Together for Two place come in and visit your nearest GWCC Children’s Centre or click here.
