Eligibility for the free early years entitlement for two-year-olds under Universal Credit
This consultation explains the general principles taken into account in considering changes to the eligibility criteria for the free early education entitlement for two-year-olds in light of the introduction of Universal Credit. The intention is that these entitlements reach less advantaged households in a way that is consistent, fair and simple.
The document also explains plans for communicating changes to parents, early years providers and local authorities, as well as the steps proposed to support their implementation.
