Early Years Funding - 30 Hours Free Childcare
Bradworthy Pre-School does offer 30 hours funding. From September 2017 your 3 or 4-year-old child may be eligible for up to 30 funded hours of early years childcare per week (for 38 weeks), or 1140 hours per year.
Eligibility for 30 hours of free childcare will be checked by the government. Follow the link in the box below to check your eligibility and you can apply for 30 hours of free childcare through their Childcare Service website.
If you are eligible, you will receive an 11 digit code to take directly to your participating childcare provider. Your childcare provider will check the code and confirm your eligibility.
