Childcare for three and four year-olds

If you have a child aged three or four, they can get 15 hours of free childcare/early education regardless of the families income or resident status. You wont need to apply, simply search for a childcare provider offering the funding. Find out more about 15 hours for three and four year-olds below.

If you are a working parent, you may be eligible for an additional 15 hours (commonly known as 30 Hours Childcare). To find out more about this scheme, see 30 hours childcare below.

Ealing's Parent and Young Person's portal will be unavailable on Thursday 25th August due to system updates. You will not be able to complete any applications for two year old childcare funding during this time. We apologise for any inconvenience this may cause.
