Are you missing out on free childcare?
Some families with two-year-olds and all families with three and four-year-olds can claim up to 15 hours a week of free registered childcare. Many working parents of three and four-year olds can claim up to 30 hours of free childcare each week.
Early learning with a registered childcare provider can help your child develop important language, physical and social skills during the years when their brain is developing the fastest. Your child will also have the opportunity to make friends, learn new skills and grow in confidence before they start school.
To receive funding for this Summer term, you’ll need to make sure you apply by Wednesday 31 March.
For more information on what you’re eligible for, how you can apply and advice on your childcare options, visit https://love.lambeth.gov.uk/are-you-missing-out-on-free-childcare
