Free Childcare Doubles to 30 Hours

Government are offering eligible families a saving of up to £5,000 a year when the new 30 hours free childcare scheme opens in September.

Parents with a child under five years old can now apply for a 30 hours free childcare place for September 2017.

Working parents of three and four-year-olds in England will see the current benefit double from 15 hours of free childcare.
