30 hours funding

In England, Ofsted-registered early years providers are able to offer free early years education and childcare for children aged 3-4 and, in some instances, aged 2.


This dedicated section for 30 hours childcare breaks down all the information you need to know about the funding whether you are a practitioner or parent. Practitioners can access FAQs, eligibility criteria, helpful explainer videos and our Business Smart cost calculator while parents can find a support guide to help you feel less overwhelmed. Lastly, we want to make sure our members know how PACEY is supporting them, so read all our articles and quotes in our media section.   

If you have any queries about 30 hours childcare, please contact our policy team.
