Around 600,000 children have benefitted from a 30 hours place in the first two years of delivery. Nurseries and childcare providers can choose whether to offer the entitlements and can then do so in ways which meet the needs of their business, within the confines of the statutory guidance.</p><p>As part of the Department’s commitment to support early years providers in delivering high quality care and education, my right hon.
