All 3 and 4-year-olds and some 2-year olds in England are currently entitled to up to 15 hours a week free childcare for 38 weeks of the year (during school term-times). We spread this free entitlement over 12 months (instead of 38 weeks), to help spread the savings throughout the year.
You may already know that the government from September 2017 is rolling out a scheme offering ‘30 hours free childcare’ to some families with children aged 3 to 4-years-old. The ‘30 hours free childcare’ scheme is great news for eligible families, who could claim up to double the amount of free childcare they are currently entitled to.
This could take your free childcare entitlement from 570 hours a year up to 1,140 hours a year. For more information please click on the 15hr or 30hr options.
Future plans are in place to create a out-of-school club classroom to provide parents with breakfast, after-school and holiday club services.
We would like to welcome you to the Early Learners Nursery Runcorn which is now open! We operate close to the old-town centre of Runcorn on Lowlands Road by Runcorn train station. The nursery is open Monday to Friday, 7am to 6pm.
Our new nursery is a purpose built setting catering for the ages from birth to five years old.

Children are separated into the different classrooms depending on the age and ability. Our nursery benefits from an experienced, caring and enthusiastic team.
