From September 2017, the Department for Education rolls out a new policy of extended entitlement of up to 30 hours funded childcare for eligible children aged three and four.

A child is eligible from the term that begins following their third birthday if the child’s parent(s) meets the eligibility criteria set out below:

  • The parent (and their partner where applicable) should be seeking the funded childcare to enable them to work.
  • The parent of the child (and their partner where applicable) should also be in qualifying paid work. Each parent or the single parent in a lone parent household will need to expect to earn the equivalent of 16 hours at the national living wage or their national minimum wage rate over the forthcoming quarter.
  • Where one or both parents are in receipt of benefits in connection with sickness or parenting, they are treated as though they are in paid work.
  • Where one parent (in a couple household) is in receipt or could be entitled to be in receipt of specific benefits related to caring, incapacity for work or limited capability for work that they are treated as though they are in paid work;
    where a parent is in a ‘start-up period’, (ie they are newly self-employed), they do not need to demonstrate that they meet the income criteria for twelve months in order to qualify for the extended entitlement.
  • If either or both parents’ income exceeds £100,000 they will not be eligible for the extended entitlement.
