30 hours free childcare

From 1st September 2017, working parents of children aged 3 and 4 could be entitled to up to 30 hours of free childcare each week.

Parents (or the sole parent in a lone parent family) will qualify if each earn, on average, a weekly minimum wage equivalent to 16 hours at national minimum wage or natural living wage; or if their combined income is less than £100,000 a year.

More information, including details of the application process, is available from the Stockton Council website

Parents can also speak to Little Ladybirds Manager Jennifer Thompson on 01642 614020.
