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

Families where both parents work more than 16 hours per week at the National Living Wage and earn less than under £100,000 per year are eligible for a range of support including:

  • 20% of childcare costs for children under the age of 12, up to a cap of £2000 per child per year, from Tax-Free Childcare.
  • 30 hours of free childcare per week for 3 and 4 year olds in England.
