Important Update on 30 Hours Free Childcare

November 21, 2017

Julian is promoting important information for working parents regarding the 30 hours free childcare scheme.

The Government are now looking ahead to a new cohort of children joining the scheme in January. These are the children who will have turned three years old by the end of December.

Parents wanting to take up a 30 hours place for their child in the January term should apply now and ideally by 30 November to ensure they receive their eligibility code in good time for next term. Not all parents can get a code straight away – HMRC sometimes needs more information to check whether a parent is eligible, for example where the parent has a job offer rather than a record of employment with HMRC.

Parents who already have a child taking up a 30 hours place also need to confirm their details are up to date every three months. Parents will receive an email notification four weeks and two weeks before this date, reminding them to do so. Parents will need to confirm their details via their online childcare account, which can be found at www.gov.uk/childcareaccount.

The Government met its commitment to launch 30 hours free childcare earlier this year, and Julian has recently been informed that all nurseries in York who were already providing the 15 hour universal entitlement offer were now offering the 30 hour scheme.
