30 hours childcare funding for eligible 3 and 4-year-olds

Working parents of children aged 3 or 4 years old may be entitled to 30 hours of funded childcare per week during term time, rather than the 15 hours of funded childcare available to all. Find out more about eligibility criteria and how to apply below. 

What is 30 hours funded childcare?

If you are a parent of a child aged three or four, you can receive government funded childcare each year. This is 15 hours per week (term time only).

If you are currently employed, you could receive an extra 15 hours per child, each year. This means you could receive a total of 30 hours per week term time of funded childcare per year for each child aged three or four years. This is 30 hours per week (term time only).
