That will include funding for our free early education entitlements, on which we plan to spend around £3.5 billion this year alone.</p><p> </p><p>The early years national funding formula, which we introduced in April 2017 following extensive consultation, allocates our funding to local authorities fairly and transparently.</p><p> </p><p>The department allows local authorities to retain some funding to cover administrative costs and statutory duties, so long as the vast majority, 95%, is passed on to providers.</p><p> </p><p>The government recognises the need to keep the evidence base on costs up-to-date. We continue to monitor the provider market closely through a range of regular and one-off research projects which provide insight into various aspects of the provider market.</p>
