Have your say on the future of the 30-hours funded entitlement policy

May 21, 2021

The Early Years Alliance is working with social mobility charity the Sutton Trust to gain an up-to-date understanding of early years provider views on the 30-hour funded entitlement policy, and in particular:

  • what changes, if any, you would like to see made to the 30-hours policy
  • what impact any changes to the 30-hours policy, such as it being made universal for all three- and four-year-olds, would have on your provision.

The result of this survey will form part of the Sutton Trust’s new research programme looking at how best to ensure equal access to early years education.

Your views will be vital for informing our collective campaigning and lobbying so we would be very grateful if you could take just 5-10 minutes to respond to the survey.

The survey is completely anonymous, and will close on Thursday 3 June. If you have any queries about the survey, please contact us at
