30hrs Free Funding

All 3 and 4-year-olds in England already get 15 hours a week free early education. If their parents are living and working in England, 3 and 4-year-olds may be entitled to 30 hours free childcare.

The eligibility criteria are the same as the ones for Tax-Free Childcare, except you can continue to get these types of support at the same time as 30 hours free childcare:

  • tax credits
  • Universal Credit
  • childcare vouchers or salary sacrifice schemes
  • childcare grants and bursaries

When you apply, you’ll be confirming that you need childcare so that you and your partner, if you have one, can work.

When you have got confirmation you will need to bring your code you the nursery along with your NI number so that we can send the information to the council for further verification.
