Free childcare hours

Please could someone explain to me the free childcare hours? I'm a single mum, currently unemployed as I have a 4 month old baby so I'm on Universal Credit. Oldest is 3 in October, would I be entitled to any free hours if I'm unemployed?

You should be able to get 15 hours a week now for the 3 year old

He's not 3 until October x

Yup you get 15 hours now. Then increases 30 hours the term after he turns 3, so Jan.

Does anyone have the exact link of how to apply? Been going round in circles on the gov website but can't actually find how to apply 😩

Hey Hun, here's the gov link that breaks it down about funding for non working parents. You need to contact your local council. Hope this helps x

You just have to contact the nurseries and fill out their application forms for the 3 year olds free child care hours
