There are several different ways in which you can get help with childcare costs, including:
Early Years Education Funding:
Universal entitlement (“15 hours”)
Extended entitlement for 3 & 4 year-olds (“30 hours”)
Voucher Schemes (closed to new applicants from April 2018)
In addition, there may be funding available for settings to support individual children with Special Educational Needs or disabilities, as well as adopted children, children in care and those whose parents are on low incomes.
If you, or we, believe your child may be eligible for additional support we will discuss this with you on an individual basis.
Funding and other help with childcare costs
There is a Government website which gives information on all of these: https://www.childcarechoices.gov.uk/
A Childcare Costs Calculator will give you personalised information on the various options available to you: https://www.gov.uk/childcare-calculator
We strongly advise that you go to the website and check your eligibility as soon as possible, as some funding has to be applied for in advance.
