Childcare Offer for 3 – 4 year olds (30 hours)

Childcare Offer for 3 – 4 year olds (30 hours)

The Childcare Offer, which provides eligible families with up to 30 hours of government funded early education and childcare for 3 and 4 year olds was suspended in April to allow resources to be refocused to support the childcare needs of critical workers and vulnerable children through the Coronavirus Childcare Assistance Scheme (C-CAS).

With schools set to return from September, the Offer will reopen for applications enabling families to start accessing the funded childcare.

Parents who would have been eligible for the Offer in the summer term, but who missed out on a full term because they had not started taking up the Offer before the pandemic, will be able to submit their applications from mid-August.

Applications from parents whose child becomes eligible for the Offer in the autumn term will be considered from the start of September onwards.

Please bear with us as after the Minister’s announcement today, we are now working on updating our Childcare Offer website in preparation for applications.
