Government information on childcare offer for parents

The Childcare Choices campaign aims to raise awareness and understanding of the support available from the government with the costs of childcare.

Parents and carers can check that they aren’t missing out by visiting where you can find the right offers of childcare support available.

With the school Christmas holidays approaching and looking ahead to half term in February, it is more important than ever that parents and carers are able to access the financial support they qualify for. You could be entitled to:

  • up to £2,000 a year of Tax-Free Childcare per child (or £4,000 if disabled) for children up to 11, or 17 if they’re disabled
  • help with up to 85% of their childcare costs for children up to 16 with Universal Credit
  • 30 hours of free childcare for 3 and 4 year olds if they’re a working family in England
