Luton’s nursery education code of practice documents are based on the DfE’s 2017 statutory guidance and should be read and understood alongside it.

The local conditions within these documents have been developed to ensure that the needs of children accessing free early education entitlement in Luton are met.

To be eligible to be included in Luton’s Directory of Providers to deliver free early education places, all early years and childcare providers must adhere to the conditions of the provider agreement with Luton Council. Only those providers who meet the requirements of Luton’s code of practice will be funded to provide free places.

Luton Council gives all Ofsted registered early years and childcare providers, that meet Ofsted’s quality expectations, the opportunity to offer free early education places to eligible children aged two, three and four years of age.

All eligible children should be able to access and take up free, high quality, early education, benefitting the child’s social, physical and mental development and helping to prepare them for school.
