Funding Information for Parents

All children are entitled to attend a funded part-time early education place from the term after their third birthday until they start school. Childcare can be offered by private, independent and voluntary providers as well as childminders and schools.

The Extended Funded Entitlement for working parents of 3 & 4-year-olds provides eligible parents with a total of 30 hours of funded childcare per week, over 38 weeks or the equivalent number of hours across more weeks per year.
