Apply now for 15 or 30 hours childcare to start your place in April



This is the first stage of the biggest ever childcare expansion in England, so you can juggle the job you want with being a parent.


  • If your child turns three or four on or before 31st March and you are an eligible working parent in England, you can apply for up to 30 hours childcare or early education per week, over 38 weeks of the year.


The deadline to apply is 31st March. We recommend you do so by the end of February to get your childcare code in good time.


If you haven’t used a childcare provider before or want to change it, find the right one for you and check whether they offer 15 or 30 hours childcare.
