30 Hours Funded Childcare

All 3 or 4 year old children are currently entitled to up to 15 hours of free early education per week – term time only.

From September 2017, this could increase to up to 30 hours of free childcare per week if you are eligible.

For further information and to find out how you check if you are eligible, please go to 30 hours free childcare – Stockport Council.

Alternatively you may already be using additional childcare and are happy with this, then you can continue with this arrangement and just access the 15 hours at our school.

To assist parents understand how to confirm eligibility and how to apply for 30 hours of childcare, we have uploaded three flowcharts which explain the process and eligibility criteria.
