All you need to know about free funded places for 2, 3 and 4 year olds

 

 Funding 2, 3 and 4 year old places

2 year funding

Information about whether or not your child is eligible can be found at www.gov.uk/freechildcare.

To be eligible parents must be getting one of the following:

  • Income Support

  • income-based Jobseeker’s Allowance (JSA)

  • income-related Employment and Support Allowance (ESA)

  • support through part 6 of the Immigration and Asylum Act

  • the guaranteed element of State Pension Credit

  • child Tax Credit (but not Working Tax Credit) and have an annual income not over £16,190

  • the Working Tax Credit 4-week run on (the payment you get when you stop qualifying for Working Tax Credit)

  • Working Tax Credits and earn £16,190 a year or less

Children are also entitled to a place if:

  • they’re looked after by a local council

  • they have a current statement of special education needs (SEN) or an education health and care plan

  • they get Disability Living Allowance

  • they’ve left care under a special guardianship order, child arrangements order or adoption order

3 and 4 year funding

All 3 to 4-year-olds in England can get 570 free hours per year. It’s usually taken as 15 hours a week for 38 weeks of the year, but you can choose to take fewer hours over more weeks.

Bright beginnings will offer an additional 5 hours per week for free.

30 hours free funding

Eligibility

You can usually get 30 hours free childcare if you (and your partner, if you have one) are:

  • in work - or getting parental leave, sick leave or annual leave

  • each earning at least the National Minimum Wage or Living Wage for 16 hours a week - this is £125.28 if you’re over 25

This earnings limit does not apply if you’re self-employed and started your business less than 12 months ago.

You’re not eligible if:

  • your child does not usually live with you

  • either you or your partner has a taxable income over £100,000

  • you’re from outside the EEA and your UK residence card says you cannot access public funds

If you foster your child, you cannot apply online for 30 hours free childcare. Speak to your social worker and your local authority if you want to apply.

You can get 30 hours free childcare at the same time as claiming Universal Credit, tax credits, childcare vouchers or Tax-Free Childcare.

If you cannot work

You may still be eligible if your partner is working, and you get Incapacity Benefit, Severe Disablement Allowance, Carer’s Allowance or Employment and Support Allowance.
