Families urged not to miss out on free childcare

Free early education and childcare places

Parents and carers in the borough of Hounslow are being urged not to miss out on a free early years education place for their child this autumn.  Free early education places can be accessed in day nurseries, pre-schools and with childminders.  A child’s early years are the foundation for their future development, providing a strong base for lifelong learning and learning abilities. If support is needed with finding a childcare place, parents and carers can contact the Family Information Service on 020 8583 3470 / 020 8583 6421 or email fis@hounslow.gov.uk 

NB Parents and carers should check if there are any additional charges before taking up the place. More information can be found here – www.hounslow.gov.uk/childcare
