Childcare Funding: Autumn Term 2018 Deadline

Apply now for childcare funding for the Autumn Term

You may already be aware that all 3 & 4-year-old children are eligible to receive funding towards childcare costs. As a minimum, you can claim up to 15 hours of funded childcare per week for a place at one of our nurseries. If you work, you could receive up to 30 hours per week.

2-year-old’s may also be eligible to receive up to 15 hours of funded childcare per week, if you meet the requirements. Please visit your Local Authority’s website to check if you’re eligible to claim:

Deadline to Apply

  • 30 hours per week for 3 & 4-year-old’s – 31st August 2018*
  • 15 hours per week for 3 & 4-year-old’s – 4th October 2018
  • 15 hours per week for 2-year-old’s – 4th October 2018

*Although the official deadline to apply for 30 hours funding is 31st August, we are recommending that parents apply as early as 31st July. This is due to the significant number of delays which occurred during the application process for the previous term.

How to Apply

For all 15 hours funding applications, all you need to do is find your local nursery and then get in touch. We can then arrange a suitable date and time for you to visit, where we can help you complete your funding application.

If you want to apply for 30 hours funding for this Summer Term, you will need to have obtained a code through this Government website . Once you have your code, please bring this with you to the nursery so that we can verify it with the Local Authority.
