Government childcare support

12 January 2024 (by Tracy Cottam (TCottam))

Dear Parents and Carers

Starting from April 2024, existing childcare support will be expanded in phases. By September 2025, most working families with children under the age of 5 will be entitled to 30 hours of childcare support.

The changes are being introduced gradually to make sure that providers can meet the needs of more families. This means that:

From April 2024, eligible working parents of 2-year-olds will be able to access 15 hours childcare support.

Here is a link below to sign up for more details about the upcoming expansion from April 2024, as well as how to apply

If you have any more questions please speak to a member of staff and we will help as much as we can
