Research on school provision for 3 yr olds

Can you help with our school research? Once your child is entitled to 15 hours free provision (aged 3yrs) would you prefer. A) 3 full days taught by a teacher. B) 5 mornings taught by a teacher. Or C) continue with current provision (not at school) until they start Reception class. Thanks

I don't think there should be school provision for 3 year olds, I don't believe they should be taught anything.
This is why we didn't take the 15 hours, they should be playing and learning from this.

Depends on the child. 2 of mine were better with half days but my third has just started and I am sure she would thrive on 3 full days, but we don't have the choice.
Ultimately, what I would like is an ongoing dialogue with the school and to tailor the provision to each child as much as possible. A big ask, I know!

My children are in a school nursery, but following the same early years curriculum as other pre school settings. I didn't think there was any difference, all children are learning through play regardless of the setting. Sorry if I have misunderstood your question.
