If you have received a letter, you will need to complete the online application form to check your eligibility (link below). The letter is not proof of entitlement as your circumstances can change. You do not need the letter to make an application - anyone meeting eligibility can apply.
The eligibility starts from the school term after your child’s second birthday. If you qualify, you will receive an authorisation code, which you need to give to provide us with. The authorisation code can be used at more than one provider and is valid until the funding period following your child's third birthday.
If you are eligible, your child is entitled to a maximum of 570 funded hours in the 12 month period. Please refer to the table below for the eligible dates of birth.

Three and four year old children
All three and four year olds can access 15 hours per week of funded childcare for 38 weeks of the year, regardless of the income or working status of their parent or carer.
In addition, eligible working families of three and four year olds can currently access 30 hours a week of funded care and education for 38 weeks of the year (570 hours in total).
Applications for this funding is made through the Childcare Choices website
Eligible working families
Families have to meet certain income requirements to be eligible for the current 30-hour offer for three and four year olds, and the new offers for children who are two years old.
The eligibility criteria applies to each parent or carer in dual-parent households and the lone parent or carer in lone-parent households.
If you are eligible, you will be given an 11-digit code that you will need to provide us along with your national insurance number and your child’s birth certificate.
We will then use the government’s eligibility checking system to check the code is valid. You will need to reconfirm your eligibility every three months and will receive a reminder text message or email from the government before the deadline.
We accept payment using the government’s Tax-free childcare scheme which allows eligible parents to open an online account to pay for childcare. For every £80 you pay in, the government will pay in an extra £20.
The eligibility criteria for tax-free childcare is similar to the 30-hour offer (see above).
