Are you a working parent of a three or four year old?

Would you like an extra 15 hours of free childcare?

The Government is offering eligible parents an extra 15 hours of  free childcare.

This is in addition to the 15 hours all parents can claim from the term after their child’s third birthday.

If you meet the criteria, apply and receive a voucher code before 31 August, you can get a total of 30 hours of free early education and childcare from September.

Who can apply for the extra hours?

You can apply if the following applies to your family:

  • both parents are working, or one parent if it is a lone parent family
  • each parent earns, on average, a weekly minimum equivalent to 16 hours at national minimum wage or national living wage
  • annual income is lower than £100,000

    This process is administered by central government so we may not be able to help with the system problems. However, if you have a question about childcare you can call the Family Information Service on 01484 414887.
