30 hours entitlement
There is also a useful article on the BBC website.
Parents are able to make applications for the 30 hours’ when their child is 2 years and 36 weeks old, and parents will be issued with a code (if deemed eligible by HMRC). However, parents will not be able to take up childcare places until the start of the term following a child’s third birthday (1st Jan/April/September).
If any parents are having issues applying online for the 30 hours' entitlement please contact the Childcare Service Helpline: 0300 123 4097.
