Funded childcare is available to all children the term after their 3rd birthday up until they start school. They will receive a ‘Universal Entitlement’ of up to 11 hours per week over 50 weeks of the year, known as the ‘Stretched Offer’ or  up to 15 hours per week, Term-Time only over 38 weeks of the year known as the ‘Standard Offer’.

In September 2017, there was the introduction of a further 15 hours available known as the ‘Extended Entitlement’, equating to up to 30 hours free per week using the ‘Standard offer’, or up to 22 hours per week using the ‘Stretched Offer’ for 3 and 4 year olds.  This entitlement is only available to families where both parents are working (or lone parent is working if in a single parent family).  There is an eligibility criteria to meet which can be found here.
