The government have produced an EE Choice Framework Guide which explains how and where your child can take up their funded 2 year old place, information which may help you decide where your child will take up their place and how to make a complaint if you are not offered a choice.
All providers must ensure that they can offer each child a session of at least three hours per day, as a minimum.
