Parents have just over a week left to apply for nursery school places for their children.
All children from the age of three are entitled to 15 hours of free early education for 38 weeks each year until they start full-time school.
This can be at pre-schools, playgroups, day nurseries, childminders and schools.
Hertfordshire County Council is reminding families with children born between September 1, 2010 and August 31, 2011 to apply for a nursery place for the 2014 to 2015 school year.
The online nursery application system closes next Friday.
Nursery places will be offered to parents on April 29.
