Answered on

24 January 2018

We do not hold data relating to the number of children eligible for 30 hours who are disabled.

We will collect data about the number of children taking up 30 hours free childcare in the January 2018 Early Years and Schools Census. This will be published in the ‘Education provision: children under 5 years of age’ statistical first release in summer 2018. This will include data about the number of children with special educational needs or a disability taking up government-funded hours.
