Help with childcare costs

If you are using Ofsted Registered Childcare you could be entitled to some help with your childcare costs.

Tax-Free Childcare

You can get up to £500 every 3 months (up to £2,000 a year) for each of your children to help with the costs of childcare. This goes up to £1,000 every 3 months if a child is disabled (up to £4,000 a year).

Free childcare for 2,3 and 4 year olds.

You may qualify for 15 hours free childcare for eligible 2 year olds.

All 3 and 4 year olds get 15 hours free childcare the term after their 3rd birthday.

Working parents may qualify for 30 hours free childcare for 3 and 4 year olds.
