Churwell CIC provides free early education for 2 year olds and 3-4 year olds through its PLAY@Churwell setting.

Churwell CIC: Free Early Education

PLAY@Churwell provides free early education and childcare for 3-4 year olds under the government funded scheme. All children are eligible for a free 15 hour place the term after their 3rd birthday. From September 2017 this will increase to 30 hours for children of working parents – you can check if you are eligible and apply for the extra 15 hours at

At PLAY@Churwell, we follow the Early Years Foundation Stage Framework which is designed to ensure that children learn and develop well and gain the broad range of knowledge and skills to provide the right foundation for good future progress through school and life. We provide a stimulating, safe and secure environment for your child.

Our service is fully flexible, regardless of whether you are entitled to 15 or 30 hours of free early education and childcare. We are open from 7:30 to 18:00 and we can agree a pattern of sessions to suit the needs of you and your child.

We also offer paid for wraparound care around your free place. We can also offer paid for sessions for 3 year olds when your child has just turned 3 until they are eligible for a free place.

We are registered to provide free early education for eligible 2 year olds. We currently offer sessions on Monday, Tuesday, Thursday and Friday mornings. We are working on developing this service to offer more choice of sessions.

You are welcome to visit with your child to see the facilities and meet the staff.
