Funded childcare for two-year-olds
You may be able to claim up to 15 hours childcare over 38 weeks for your two-year-old.
Funding would start from the term after your child's second birthday:
|Child born between||Entitlement begins|
|1 January to 31 March||Summer term (from April 1)|
|1 April to 31 August||Autumn term (from 1 September)|
|1 September to 31 December||Spring term (from 1 January)|
You must meet the criteria and submit an application to get an entitlement letter.
This will contain a unique ID code that your childcare provider can use to claim the funding.
