30 Hours Childcare

We are offering a number of 30 hours places at Earlybirds Pre School.The Full 30 hour place hours at Earlybirds will be:
9.00 am to 3.00 pm Monday, Tuesday, Wednesday, Thursday and Friday
for children aged 3-4 years for 38 weeks per year.
If you are eligible for 30 hours funding but do not require the full 30 hours place, we can offer flexible extended hours on top of the 15 universal hours. Session times are 9am-3pm, 9am-12.30pm, 9am-1pm, 12.30pm - 3pm and 1pm -3pm.

Am I eligible?
You, and any partner, must each expect to earn (on average) at least £125 per week (equal to 16 hours at the National Minimum or Living Wage).

If you, or your partner, are on maternity, paternity or adoption leave, or you're unable to work because you are disabled or have caring responsibilities, you could still be eligible.

You can't get 30 hours free childcare if either you, or your partner, each individually expect to earn £100,000 or more.

When can my child start?
Your child can start in their childcare place the term after they turn 3 years old and have received a valid 30 hours code, whichever is later. Term start dates are 1st September, 1st January and 1st April.

To keep your 30 hours free childcare place you need to check your details are up to date every 3 months.
Eligibility codes will be checked on a termly basis throughout the year.
