Free early education for 3 and 4 year olds

Am I eligible?

Your family is eligible for the extended entitlement if you are in work (both parents in a two parent household or one parent in a one parent household) and earning the equivalent of 16 hours per week at the national minimum or living wage and not more than £100,000 per year. If you are self employed, or on a zero hour contract you will be asked to confirm that you will meet the income threshold outlined above.

You can check whether you are eligible for a range of government childcare offers, including 30 hours, via Childcare Choices. If you are eligible to apply the site will direct you to the digital childcare service.
