Childcare support for working families with two-year-olds
Childcare support for working families with two-year-olds.
The first phase of the childcare support expansion is starting in April 2024 when working parents with 2 year olds will be able to get up to 15 hours a week of funded childcare.
To be eligible, the parent of the child, and their partner where applicable, must be working and earning a salary equivalent to 16 hours a week at the national minimum or living wage and under £100,000 adjusted net income per year.
Parents have until 31 March to apply for their code. Parents are encouraged to apply between mid-January to the end of February in case they need to provide further information to support their application.
Please direct families to:
