To be eligible for 30 hours free childcare parents must meet certain criteria which are checked before a parent is given a decision. The majority of these checks happen in real time. There are some cases where additional checks may be required.

As with all digital services, the childcare service is continually monitored and performance is assessed. Updates are made regularly as a result of these assessments.
