Help available at Woodpeckers with childcare costs
Funded childcare for 2 year olds
Funded childcare for 2 year olds (15 hours weekly). Availiable to access the term after your child turns two. You may qualify if you get income support, income based job seekers allowance, child tax credit over £545 but not working tax credit or other qualifying allowances.
Funded early learning for 3 & 4 year olds
All three and four year olds are entitled to 15 hours of government funded early education for 38 weeks of the year. This applies until they reach compulsory school age (the term following their fifth birthday).
Funded early learning places give your children the best start in life. Through learning and playing with other children in a safe and structured environment, they’ll have a head start when they begin school.
More information about funded early learning is available on the government website.
