Are you eligible for funding for your two year old to access 15 hours of childcare for 38 weeks of the year?
If you are receiving one of the qualifying benefits (see eligibility criteria for free early education for two year olds), you can apply online. Alternatively ring the Family Information Service on 01305 221066 who will run the check for you.
When confirmed you will be able to receive 15 hours of free childcare a week, 38 weeks of the year from the beginning of the term after your child turns two.

With this, think of the opportunities that could be available to you! Freedom to volunteer, gain employment or return to college or training! Check to see if you are eligible.
If you require any help at all with the application, or have any questions, please get in touch with your local children's centre and ask for some assistance with the two year funding from a family support worker. Either email email@example.com or call 01202 840790
