Today, the Government is introducing Childcare Choices. Childcare Choices brings together all the government childcare offers for the first time, helping parents find the right childcare support to suit them.
As part of Childcare Choices we’re introducing two new offers in 2017 –
Tax-Free Childcare, which will be introduced on 28 April and gradually rolled out, and
30 hours free childcare, available from September 2017. From the end of April, parents will begin to apply for both schemes at the same time through a new digital childcare service.
The new Childcare Choices website provides information on the new and existing Government childcare offers:
