Is my child eligible for funded hours?

30 hours FREE childcare:

- for working families in England

- with 3 and 4 year old children

- 30 hours of free childcare for 38 weeks


Am I eligible?

You, and any partner, must each expect to earn (on average) at least £142 per week (equal to 16 hours at the National Minimum or Living Wage).

If you, or your partner, are on maternity, paternity or adoption leave, or you're unable to work because you are disabled or have caring responsiblities, you could still be eligible.

You can't get 30 hours free childcare if either you, or your partner, each individually expect to earn £100,000 or more.

When can my child start?

Your child can start in their childcare place the term after they turn 3 years old if there are spaces available.

To keep your 30 hours free childcare place, you need to check your details are up-to-date every 3 months.


What's NOT included?

The 30 hours free childcare offer is not intended to cover the costs of meals, other consumables (such as nappies or sun cream), additional hours or additional activities (such as trips). Providers may charge a fee for these additions.
