Education Secretary, Justine Greening, has announced a grant scheme worth £50m has been set up by government to create 9,000 more childcare places ahead of the expansion of free provision later this year.

Around 200 nurseries and pre-schools will receive a share of the funding to invest in new buildings, convert old ones and upgrade facilities in order to help deliver the government's 30 hours free childcare offer.
