The government is introducing new ways to help parents with childcare costs. Please visit www.childcarechoices.gov.uk to find out about childcare funding and to check your eligibility.
Your free funding can be used in part, or all to fund your child at Pre-school. Additional hours can be paid for at a rate of £3.00 per hour. This rate also applies to children from 2 years of age, until they are entitled to early years funding. Please note that funding is now available as part of the “2 year old funding” scheme if one parent is in receipt of the following:
- Income support
- Income based job seekers allowance
- Child tax credit – higher rate
- Extra working tax credit – relating to disability
- Pension credit
Please contact your local children’s centre for more information and to pick up a form.
