Two Year Old Funding

Do you have a two year old? If yes, you may be able to qualify for 15 hours free childcare per week in your setting (term time only).

To receive this funding, you must be getting one of the following:

  • Income Support
  • Income-based Jobseeker’s Allowance (JSA)
  • Income-related Employment and Support Allowance (ESA)
  • Support through part 6 of the Immigration and Asylum Act
  • The guaranteed element of State Pension Credit
  • Tax credits and have an annual household income under £16,190 before tax
  • The Working Tax Credit 4-week run on (the payment you get when you stop qualifying for Working Tax Credit)
  • Universal Credit - if you and your partner have a combined income from work of less than £15,400 a year after tax

Children are also entitled to a place if:

  • they’re looked after by a local council
  • they have an Education, Health and Care plan (formerly a Statement of Special Educational Needs)
  • they get Disability Living Allowance 
  • they’ve left care under a special guardianship order, child arrangements order or adoption order
