FREE childcare for 3 & 4 year olds

21 Jul

From September many working parents of 3 & 4 year olds can get up to 30 hours a week of free childcare.

That’s up to 1,140 hours of free childcare a year!

If you’re working and your child will be 3 or 4 by 31 August apply now so your child can start in September.

Don’t miss out, apply by mid-August at the latest to ensure you have an approval code by 31 August! Missing the deadline means your child can’t qualify until January 2018.

To find out more and apply visit or

Or contact your choice of nursery or childminder.

Please take the time to read the report available at
