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.
