Changes to childcare support
The financial support that is available to parents to help with the cost of childcare is increasing.
In the Spring Budget 2023, the Government announced extending the existing childcare support. Currently, parents who work more than 16 hours a week and earn less than £100,000 are entitled to 30 hours funded childcare a week for children aged three to four.
Starting from April 2024, the scheme will be expanding. By September 2025, working parents of all children over the age of nine months will be eligible to 30 hours of funded childcare.
Some providers may ask for charges in addition to the funded childcare.
