Three and Four Year Old Funding – 30 hours:
If eligible, you’re entitled to an extra 570 hours of free early education childcare a year to use flexibly, so 1140 hours in total. You, and any partner, must each expect to earn (on average) at least £120 a 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 responsibilities, you could still be eligible. You can’t get 30 hours free childcare if you, or your partner, expect to earn £100,000 or more. Parents need to apply the term before their child meets the age criterion to ensure they can access a place at the start of the term after your child turns 3 years of age – if not, you will need to wait until the following term to access your full 30 hours.
Parents who want to claim the additional 15 hours entitlement for three and four year olds need to apply via HMRC (not the local council authority)
Enquire with the managers as to how you can use your funded childcare at the nursery.
