Funded childcare for 3 and 4-year-olds

All children are entitled to attend a funded part-time early education place from the term after their third birthday until they start school. Childcare can be offered by private, independent and voluntary providers as well as childminders and schools.

30 hours childcare commenced in Buckinghamshire in September 2017. The scheme aims to help families with 3 and/or 4-year-olds to start back into work or to extend their working pattern. See 30 Hours Funded Childcare for further information.
