When is the deadline for 30 hours childcare?

If you want to claim for 30 hours free childcare, the deadline is 31st March !

Does your child qualify ?

Currently all three to four-year-olds in the UK are entitled to 15 hours of free childcare each week.

Well if your child is passed their 3rd birthday, and born between 1st April and 31st August, they’d qualify for the Autumn term, if born between than and 31st December – the Spring term. In the new year until 31st March – then the Summer term.

To qualify for an extra 15 hours per week…

In order to be eligible for the extra 15 hours, you have to meet certain criteria.

This includes one or both parents working the equivalent of 16 hours per week at least at the national minimum or living wage and earning less than £100,000 per year each.
