Working Parent Entitlement

Eligible working parents of children aged nine months old by 31 August can receive 15 hours’ free childcare from September 2024.

First, find out if you’re eligible, using the Government’s Childcare Choices website above.

Next, apply for an eligibility code.

Working Parent Entitlement is subject to your child’s eligibility, nursery availability and funding terms. For more information, please speak to your nursery office.

Universal Funding

All three and four-year-olds are eligible for a funded early education place, for either:

  • 15 hours a week for 38 weeks per term (term time only)
  • The equivalent 570 hours stretched over the whole year

This applies from the term after the child’s third birthday and is regardless of the immigration status of the child or their parents.

No eligibility code is needed.

Are you eligible for tax-free childcare?

Check to see if you’re also eligible for tax-free childcare here.

Please be aware that if you use any of your funding entitlement elsewhere then these fees may not apply at Birmingham Day Nurseries.

Registration Fee

Registration costs £60.

You will also need to pay a £250 deposit to secure your child’s place; both payments are required to process the application. The deposit fee of £250 will be refunded to you as a deduction from your first month’s nursery invoice. Unfortunately, if you later choose not to take up the allocated place, then this fee is non-refundable.

How to pay

Payments are monthly :

  • Online
  • Via Government tax-free childcare.
