Education and training for Ukrainian guests

Education for children

Between the ages of 3 and 4, children can get free early education. Some 2-year-olds are also eligible. Early education can be taken at a nursery or with a childminder.

You can find local nurseries or childminders online.

You can find out about funding for early years education on our website.

Registering with a school

Children five years or older will need to be registered with a school near where they live. 

Contact Central Bedfordshire Council’s School Admissions Team for a school place on 0300 300 8037 or email

Further information is available on our school admissions pages.

School transport and uniforms

Guests might be entitled to free transport to and from school, help with buying school uniforms and possibly free school meals. We will help with this.

If you have any problems, please contact our Ukraine Support team on 0300 300 8855 or by emailing
