30 hours' funded childcare for foster children

When to apply

We recommend that you apply in good time, so that you receive your code the term before your child becomes eligible. You can apply up to 16 weeks before your foster child turns three.

If the application is successful, a 30 hours code will be issued; this must be taken to the chosen childcare provider.

You'll need to reconfirm your eligibility with us every three months.
