The entitlement is 15 hours of free early learning and care per week, provided over a minimum of 38 weeks of the year.
30 hour Government funding
All 3 and 4-year-olds in England can get 570 hours of free early education and childcare per year. This is usually taken as 15 hours a week for 38 weeks of the year. From September 2017 it is expected that the majority of working parents of 3 and 4 year olds will be eligible for an additional 15 hours of free childcare per week.
You, and any partner, must each expect to earn (on average) at least £120 a week (equal to 16 hours at the National Minimum or Living Wage). If you, or your partner, are on maternity, paternity or adoption leave, or you’re unable to work because you are disabled or have caring responsibilities, you could still be eligible.
