Temporary flexibilities for childcare funding
Eligibility for all the different childcare funding schemes have not changed but there are some temporary flexibilities for parents claiming 30 hours funded childcare and Tax-Free Childcare. This includes parents who:
- are now not able to work
- are now working less due to coronavirus
- have missed the deadline to apply for this term
If your child is eligible you can still apply for 2 year old funding even if you haven't had a golden ticket. If you cannot find a provider offering care for 2 year olds you can use your funding later this year.
