Changes to childcare – info here

If you’re a working parent, you can apply now for two new government childcare schemes launching this year – Tax-Free Childcare which begins immediately and 30 hours free childcare which starts in September.

This video shows what parents think about the new 30 hours.

You can apply through the new digital childcare service if you have a child under 4 on 31 August 2017 or a disabled child who is under 17.

More info is available from Bradford Council online here.

If eligible for Tax-Free Childcare you’ll receive a government top-up of £2 for every £8 that you pay into your Tax-Free Childcare account.
