30 hour free childcare criteria
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.
This is equivalent to school term times.
The eligibility for the 30 hour free childcare is:
Your child will have their 3rd birthday before the end of the term prior to admission
Both parents must be working – or if you are a single parent, then you must be working.
Each parent earns, on average, a weekly minimum equivalent to 16 hours at National Minimum Wage or National Living Wage.
Parents must have an annual income of less than £100,000.
You live in England.
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.
