Funding options

There are lots of government funding options to help parents with childcare costs.

Although this does not mean that your childcare costs will be free, it does mean that your childcare costs could be much less than you expected. There are three separate government funded childcare schemes available to parents with children aged 2, 3 and 4.

You are also able to split your funding offer between two childcare providers. To do this you will need to provide your eligibility code and information to each provider and you will not be able to access more than two sites in one day. Each provider may calculate your funding on either term-time only or all year-round basis, combined the providers cannot exceed the funded offer of 15-hour - 570 hours per year, and 30-hours - 1140 hours per year.
