Tax-Free Childcare (TFC) provides support to parents of 20% of their childcare costs, up to a cap of £2000 per child per year.

The official statistics publication ‘Tax-Free Childcare Statistics’ ( contains a monthly breakdown of Government costs.

The Government does not collect data on the number of hours of childcare being subsidised by TFC. It is therefore not possible to calculate the cost to the Government of TFC per hour of childcare subsidised.
