The Government is proposing to increase the free childcare offer for three and four-year-olds from 15 to 30 hours a week from September 2017.
To qualify for the full 30 hours of free childcare, each parent (or the sole parent in a single parent family) will need to earn, on average, the equivalent of 16 hours on the national minimum wage per week and no more than £100,000 per year. (A family with an annual household income of £199,998 would be eligible if each parent earns just under £100,000).
Self-employed parents and those on zero-hours contracts will be eligible if they meet the average earnings threshold.
The Government intends to make provision to support families where one parent is in receipt of benefits relating to caring responsibilities or has a disability and the other parent is working.
Hampshire plans to roll out the 30 hours offer in accordance with the Government's statutory requirements from September 2017.
At Busikids, we are only able to take a limited number of children attending just during term time, but you may still claim funding and attend all year round.
This link offers all the information you may require regarding funding for childcare, from the 30 free hours to tax credits. We hope you find it useful.
