Government Doubles Free Childcare

Government Doubles Free Childcare

From September 2017, working families with three and four year-olds are entitled to an additional 15 hours of funded childcare with an Ofsted registered child carer. This is in addition to the universal 15 hours of childcare that all families are entitled to – meaning that working families can access up to 30 hours of free childcare. 

Andrew comments, “I am happy to report that the Government’s doubling of free childcare has now been effective since September. This is great news for working families as they will receive an additional 15 hours of childcare. 

“Please get in touch with North Lincs or the East Riding to find out more information and check eligibility.”
