New 30 hours funding

Posted: Thursday 09th February

FREE childcare for working parents of 3 and 4 years olds for 30 hours a week.

From September 2017 working parents of 3 and 4 year olds will be able to access 30 hours of free childcare per week term time. This can be spread across the whole year.

Will I be eligible?

The 30 hours of free childcare will be available to parents and carers of 3 and 4 year olds where:

  • Both parents are workiing (or the sole parent in a lone parent family) and each parent or carer earns on average a weekly minimum that is equivalent to 16 hours of national minimum wage or national living wage and less than £100,000 per year.
  • One parent is working and the other parent is receiving certain benefits for caring responsibilities.

If you think you may be eligible please contact our nurseries for more information or to arrange a visit.
