What is the 15 & 30 Hours

Free Early Education (F.E.E)?


All 3 and 4-year-olds and some 2-year olds in England are currently entitled to up to 15 hours a week free childcare for 38 weeks of the year (during school term-times).  All children in England get 570 free hours per year.  We spread this free entitlement over 12 months (instead of 38 weeks), to help spread the savings throughout the year.

You may be able to get up to 30 hours free childcare (1,140 hours per year, which you can choose how you take). The ‘30 hours free childcare’ scheme is great news for eligible families, who could claim up to double the amount of free childcare they are currently entitled to.  This could take your free childcare entitlement from 570 hours a year up to 1,140 hours a year.  If you’re eligible for the extra hours, you can simply sign up online to get a code to give to us your childcare provider to reserve your place. You’ll get the extra hours once the next term starts.  For more information please click on the 15hr or 30hr options.
