30 hours for 3 & 4 Year olds - useful links for childcare providers

The information on this page is intended for childcare providers.  Information for parents can be found on the free early education for 3-4 year olds page.

In addition to the universal offer of 15 hours free early education, most working parents of three and four year old children will be eligible for an additional 15 hours per week - giving them a total of 30 hours free childcare.

30 hours free childcare is intended to support working parents with the cost of childcare and enable parents, where they wish, to return to work or to work additional hours.
