15 Hours of Funding
Covering the Cost of Childcare


In England, the 15 Hours Funded Childcare program encompasses two crucial government initiatives designed to provide free early education and childcare for children aged two, three, and four.

15 Hours Childcare Funding Goslings

15 Hours Childcare Funding 2 year olds

15 Hours Funded Childcare for 2-Year-Olds:

Eligibility for 15 hours of funded childcare for 2-year-olds is contingent on specific criteria, including receiving certain benefits or meeting income thresholds.

Parents should also be mindful of potential additional costs associated with the program, such as meals and trips. Non-UK citizens categorized under ‘no recourse to public funds’ might still qualify based on residency and income criteria, with eligibility determined by immigration status and household income thresholds for families residing in or outside London. Individuals with savings or investments exceeding £16,000 are considered ineligible for this program.

15 Hours Funded Childcare for 3 and 4 Year Olds:

Every three and four-year-old in England is entitled to 15 hours of funded childcare or early education per week for 38 weeks of the year, totaling 570 hours over 12 months.

Parents may need to cover additional costs like meals, nappies, wipes, and trips. Application involves contacting the nursery, providing proof of the child’s age, and completing a declaration form.

Application Process:

For both age groups, parents can apply by contacting their nursery, providing necessary documentation, and completing the required forms. Funding can be utilised starting from specific dates following the child’s second birthday. These programs aim to make quality childcare more accessible.

I can’t recommend Goslings enough. It’s a small, family-like setting which enables the children to develop really strong relationships with each other and their teachers. The staff are energetic, creative, and loving. Activities are varied so no two days are the same. We love it here, our son has absolutely thrived.

Wonderful nursery with an incredible team! The staff are so involved, professional and warm - they have created a great little nursery here. The garden was redone in 2021 and it's a lovely bit of outdoors for the kids to enjoy too. Our kids really enjoy the friendly faces and constantly-changing activities.

We've had over three years experience of Gosling's with two kids and it's been nothing but positive. The thing that jumps out from day one is the sheer love and care from all of the staff in the nursery. For us this has always been the most important factor - sending your kids into a place where you know they're well looked after and loved.
