20 ECE Hours

Why 20 ECE Free?

With 20 Hours ECE (Early Childhood Education), one of the best things you can do for your child is to start their education early and give them a strong foundation for learning in the years to come.

The 20 Hours ECE has been available since July 1 2007 and Zero2Five is a qualified Teacher Led In Home Early Childhood Education provider.

How do I know if my child qualifies?

If your child is 3 or 4 years of age and enrolled with Zero2Five, they qualify. The 20 Free hours are not income tested and has no other discriminatory guidelines.
