 30 Hour Funding

In September 2017, the Government introduced new funding to allow childcare providers to offer 30 hours free childcare to working parents.  All 3 and 4 year old's are already entitled to 15 hours of free childcare a week and this additional 15 hours will be on offer to families where both parents are working (or the sole parent is working in a lone-parent family), and each parent earns the equivalent of 16 hours a week at the national minimum or living wage, and earns less than £100,000 a year.
