Tax-Free/voucher childcare payments

Early Years Funding
All parents of qualifying children will receive up to 15 funded hours, according to the sessions they attend school.
Parents wanting to access the additional 15 hours will need to go to the HMRC website Childcare Choices and open a government gateway account to check if you qualify. If you qualify to receive this extra 15 hours funding you will be issued with an 11 digit authorisation code, which you then need to give to the school. The school will then be able to apply for these funded hours on your behalf.
All queries with regard to your funding should be directed to Childcare Services, Customer Interaction Centre and Telephone Number: 0300 123 4097.
