For the 2022/23 financial year, the department has increased the early years hourly funding rates for all local authorities by 21p an hour for the two-year-old entitlement and, for the vast majority of areas, by 17p an hour for the three- and four-year-old entitlement. Those rates, for each local authority, for two, three and four-year-olds, including a step-by-step guide, are published here: https://www.gov.uk/government/publications/early-years-funding-2022-to-2023.
