This Government is committed to supporting families across the income distribution with the cost of childcare and we will be spending almost £6 billion in 2019/20 on childcare support – more than ever before.

Families on low incomes are able to access a range of childcare support including:

  • 15 hours of free childcare per week for disadvantaged two-year olds in England.
  • 15 hours of free childcare per week for all 3 and 4 year olds in England, as well as an additional 15 hours of free childcare a week for working parents of 3 and 4 year olds in England.
  • Up to 85% of childcare costs under Universal Credit, an increase from the 70% of costs which were previously covered under Tax Credits.
