Funded hours will be changing!
In March 2023, the Government announced plans to increase access to funded childcare hours to include younger children. The phased introduction of this plan begins in April 2024 through to September 2025.
Coming in 2024
How do I get it?
You need to apply for the additional 15 funded hours through the government’s website (see Toolkit at the end of this guide). Applying for additional 15 hours funded childcare usually takes people around 20 minutes. You’ll need your National Insurance number (or your Unique Taxpayer Reference if you’re self-employed). If you are a couple, you will need this information for each of you.
If your application is successful, you’ll receive the additional 15 hours funding code. Just send us the code and secure your child’s place.
