Funded places for 2 and 3 years old

 

 

Little Twinkles Childcare offers funded places for children aged 2 (please check criteria to check you eligibility) and 3 years old children. As soon as children turn 3 they become eligible for 15 hours of free childcare.

Children will attend for 15-30 hours a week term time only (days/times arranged between parents and nursery). Children will have great opportunities to make new friends, learn new skills, develop their skills and promote overall learning.

 

15-30 hours of childcare will be paid by the government, straight to the childcare provider.

 

Please do not hesitate to contact us for more information.

 

 

 

 

 

15 and 30 hours free childcare for 3 and 4 year olds

All 3 to 4-year-olds in England can get free early education or childcare.

Some 2-year-olds are also eligible, for example if you get certain benefits.

The free early education and childcare:

  • must be with an approved childcare provider
  • stops when your child starts in reception class (or reaches compulsory school age, if later)

15 hours free childcare

All children in England get 570 free hours per year. It’s usually taken as 15 hours a week for 38 weeks of the year, but you can choose to take fewer hours over more weeks, for example.

You can get it from the term after your child’s 3rd birthday.

Contact your childcare provider or local council to find out more.

30 hours free childcare

From September 2017, you may be able to get up to 30 hours free childcare (1,140 hours per year, which you can choose how you take).

If you’re eligible for the extra hours, you sign up online to get a code to give to your childcare provider to reserve your place. You’ll get the extra hours once the next term starts.

Eligibility

You can usually get 30 hours free childcare if you (and your partner, if you have one) are:

  • in work - or getting parental leave, sick leave or annual leave
  • each earning at least the National Minimum Wage or Living Wage for 16 hours a week - this is £120 if you’re over 25

This earnings limit doesn’t apply if you’re self-employed and started your business less than 12 months ago.

You’re not eligible if:

  • your child doesn’t usually live with you
  • the child is your foster child
  • either you or your partner has a taxable income over £100,000

You can get 30 hours free childcare at the same time as claiming Universal Credit, tax credits or childcare vouchers.

If you can’t work

You may still be eligible if your partner is working, and you get Incapacity Benefit, Severe Disablement Allowance, Carer’s Allowance or Employment and Support Allowance.

Apply for 30 hours free childcare

You’ll need your details (and your partner’s, if you have one), including your:

  • National Insurance number
  • Unique Taxpayer Reference (UTR), if you’re self-employed
