In England, some 2-year-olds and all 3 and 4-year-olds are eligible for 15 hours funded early education and childcare.
In addition, some 3 and 4-year-olds are eligible for up to an additional 15 hours. This is for 38 weeks a year but may be stretched to enable you to claim fewer hours over more weeks.
The date on which your child can start claiming 15 hours of funded childcare depends on when their birthday is:
When you can start claiming:
|1 January to 31 March||Summer Term (from 1 April)|
|1 April to 31 August||Autumn Term (From 1 September)|
|1 September||Spring Term (From 1 January )|
What is 2-year-old funding?
Based on a range of criteria the funding gives your child up to 15 hours a week of learning opportunities.
This gives your child the chance to mix with other children and try out different activities. It also gives you, the parent, 15 hours a week to study, return to or look for work.
What is 3 and 4-year-old funding?
Every child that is 3 or 4 years old is automatically entitled to 15 hours of funded childcare the term after their 3rd birthday.
The additional 15 hours funding is also known as the ’30 hours funded childcare’.
This is an extension of the 3 and 4-year-old funding. Unlike the universal entitlement, you must match the eligibility criteria. If you are found to be eligible you will be given a validity code. This will let you claim up to an additional 15 hours.

|Validity start date||Must be on or before 31 December|
|Validity end date||Must be on or later than 1 January|
