Experimental statistics on the use of 30 hours funded childcare in the sixth term of national rollout, from April to July 2019 have been published by Department for Education. The publication includes eligibility codes issues and validated for the summer term 2019 and a full comparison of children in a 30 hours place, eligibility codes issued and validated for each term in the 2017/18 and the 2018/19 academic years.

Around 378,774 children were in a 30 hours place during the summer term – 38,800 more than this time last year, an 11% increase.

The total number of children in a 30 hours place is equal to 90% of the eligibility codes issued to parents for the summer term, which is 2% less than last year.
