30 Hours Childcare

As well as the general business information SfYC has developed a 30 Hours Childcare Forecaster tool in the form of a pivot table spreadsheet that will help providers to understand the potential demand of increased childcare hours for eligible working families.

30 Hours Provider Modelling Tools

SfYC have released tools to help childcare providers to consider the impact of Early Years Education Funding rates and the delivery of more childcare hours.

New childcare providers should consider the impact of the 30 Hours Childcare from September 2017. The eligibility criteria for parents to access the 30 Hours Childcare can be found on the Free Early Years Education page.

Further information and tools are available from the 30 Hours Childcare section on our website.
