Childcare Rates and Funding

Government funding for nurseries

We accept funding through government schemes, including tax-free childcare, free early education for 2 year olds, and 15 and 30 hours free childcare for 3-4 year olds.

Free early education for two year olds

If you’re the parent or carer of a two year old and you receive certain benefits, you could be eligible for a free early education or childcare place. If your child is eligible for free early education funding for 2 year olds, please complete Bristol City Council’s online application form.

15 and 30 hours free childcare for three and four year olds

All three and four year olds in England are entitled to 570 hours free early education or childcare a year. This is equal to 15 hours a week during term time (38 weeks a year) or 12 hours a week all year round (47.5 weeks a year). Some working families can also apply for an extra 570 hours free childcare per year.

If your child is eligible for 30 hours free childcare for 3-4 year olds, you can apply using the gov.uk website.

Tax-Free Childcare

Parents can get up to £2,000 government support per child per year towards their childcare costs.

To find out more about what support you might be entitled to, Bristol City Council’s website has more information.
