The Childcare Service System has now gone live for parents with children up to the age of 4. This means that parents wishing to access the 30 hours free childcare entitlement and tax free childcare from September, will now be able to apply using the system. Here is a link to the online Childcare Service: https://childcare-support.tax.service.gov.uk/par/app/applynow
If you encounter any problems with the application process or accessing the childcare account they should direct their queries to the childcare service Customer Interaction Centre on 0300 123 4097.
The eligibility criteria for the 30 hours free childcare can be found here. Parents can also check what other support they may be entitled to via www.childcarecoices.gov.uk
Please come in to school if you would like to talk about our childcare offer.
