The government are introducing new ways to help parents with childcare costs.
Three and four year-old funding
All three and four year-olds are eligible for 15 hours per week of free early education and childcare up to a maximum of 570 hours per year from the term after their child's third birthday.
Children born between -
1 January - 31 March - are eligible from the start of the term from the 1 April (summer term)
1 April - 31 August - are eligible from the start of the term from the 1 September (autumn term)
1 September - 31 December - are eligible from the start of the term from the 1 January (spring term)
You do not need to apply. You need to contact your childcare provider to arrange your place.
30 hours free childcare
From September 2017, working families may be eligible to receive the new extended free childcare entitlement.
Eligible families can get an additional 15 hours per week of free childcare for 38 weeks a year. This is on top of the 15 hours per week free early education that all three and four year-olds are entitled to.
If you have already registered your child you can reconfirm your code by signing in to your childcare account.
