- Do you earn less than £100,000 per year?
- Will your child be attending a 3 or 4 year old early education place in September 2017?
- If so, they may be entitled to a further 15 hours of free childcare per week, for 38 weeks per year.
The aim of the extended entitlement is to:
- Support working parents to manage the cost of childcare
- Support parents into work
- Allow parents to increase their working hours, should they wish to
- Some providers will offer “stretched” entitlement, meaning children can attend fewer hours per week over more than 38 weeks a year
- Parents can choose more than one provider to share these hours; however, the number of sites accessed in one day must not exceed two.
The additional hours will be available for families where:
- Both parents are working (employed or self-employed) or the sole parent is working in a lone parent family. Each parent earns below £100,000 per year and no less than the weekly equivalent of 16 hours at National Minimum Wage (21-24 year olds, £107.20 per week, 25 years +, £115.20 per week)
- Both parents are employed but one or both parents is temporarily away from the workplace on parental, maternity, paternity leave or adoption leave
- Both parents are employed but one or both parents is temporarily away from the work place on statutory sick pay
- One parent is employed and the other parent has a substantial caring responsibilities based on specific benefits received for caring.
