CHILDCARE CHOICES AND ELIGIBILITY FOR 30 HOURS OF EARLY YEARS EDUCATION
30 hour places available at Wyndham Park Nursery School
Many working parents of 3 to 4 year olds in England are eligible for 15 hours of 'extended' free childcare in addition to the 'universal' offer of 15 hours. At Wyndham Park Nursery School we offer both the 15 and the 30 hours (for eligible parents) of free early education in school term times. This means we are able to offer full time places.
Not every child will be eligible for the 30 hours but everyone will still receive the 15 hours free childcare that is currently available. The eligibility rules for 30 hours free childcare are:
- Your child will be aged 3 or 4
- Both parents must be working - or the sole parent is working in a lone parent family
- Each parent earns, on average, a weekly minimum equivalent to 16 hours at National Minimum Wage or National Living Wage
- Each parent must have an annual income of less than £100,000
- You live in England
You could be eligible for government help with childcare costs and for 30 hours of early education for your 3-4 year old. Find out more here: https://www.gov.uk/apply-30-hours-free-tax-free-childcare
