30 hour codes must be dated 31st August or before for a 1st September start

Eligible parents who want their 3 or 4 year old child to start a 30 hour place from 1st September 2018 must have applied for and received their code dated 31st August or before. If a parent brings a code dated 1st September onwards you cannot offer their child a place.

In a few cases a parent may be issued with a temporary code (beginning “11”) and these codes also must be dated 31st August 2018 or before.

If you are a provider offering 30 hour places ensure you are up to date on what to do and what support you can receive by looking at the 30 hour childcare page on BSO

Remember providers must check any new eligibility codes using the Funded 30 Hour Checker before offering a place.

Parents who are accessing a 30 hour funded place this term need to know that it is their responsibility to reconfirm their code in order to access a place from September 2018.  A poster is available to display at your setting, put on websites/social media, newsletters etc.  There is also a guide for parents to disseminate to your 30 hour parents.

These documents can be accessed through BSO on the 30 hour page.
