    30 HOUR FREE CHILDCARE CRITERIA 3-4 YEAR OLDS

    Working parents of 3 and 4 year olds may be entitled to 30 hours of free childcare.

    The 30 hours free childcare is only for 38 weeks of the year, not 48 weeks. 

    This is equivalent to school term times. 

    The eligibility for the 30 hour free childcare is:

    If one parent of the couple isn’t working, or both parents are not working then the family will still be eligible for their free 15 hours.  However if one parent isn’t working because they are an official carer (e.g. receiving benefits relating to being a carer) or they are receiving disability benefits, and the other parent is working, the government has stated it “intends to make provision“ to support these families.

    You will also be eligible if you are self-employed or on a zero hour contract, as long as you earn at least the equivalent of 16 hours at the National Minimum Wage.

    If you think you may be entitled to the free 30 hours then please complete the 30 hours application form and return it to Goodway Nursery School as soon as possible, so that we can reserve your free 30 hour place.
