Free Childcare for 2 Year Olds

Did you know that your 2 year old could qualify for 15 hours of FREE childcare?

Eligible children who are aged 2 years old can attend good quality childcare registered with OFSTED for up to 15 hours a week free. Childcare is provided in a range of settings such as Day Nurseries, Pre Schools and Childminders.

 

Research shows good quality early learning helps children:

  • Develop new skills
  • Learn to make new friends
  • Prepare for school
  • Experience exciting new activities like playing with sand and water which may not be so readily available to do at home                                                                                                                                                                                                     
To qualify for a free place you must evidence that you are in receipt of one or more of the following benefits:
  • Income Support
  • Income-based Jobseekers Allowance
  • Income-related Employment and Support Allowance
  • Support under part VI of the Immigration and Asylum Act 1999
  • The 'Guarantee' element of State Pension Credit
  • Child Tax Credit and whose earnings from employment are below £16,190 (as evidenced by your most recent final tax credit statement)
  • Working Tax Credit and whose earning from employment are below £16,190 (as evidenced by your most recent final tax credit statement)
