How much free childcare can you get - and when could this increase?
If you have a young child, you may be entitled to free childcare. What can you get?
Parents with young children may be entitled to free childcare, but the hours you're entitled to vary around the UK. The new government wants to increase free childcare for children in England from 15 hours a week in term time to 30 hours a week.
The government plans to give working parents help with childcare costs
The childcare tax break would be worth up to £2,000 a year per child - but only from autumn of 2015
The government wants to introduce a tax break to help with childcare costs, which could be worth up to £2,000 for each child, per year. That’s the good news. The bad news is that it won’t come in until the autumn of 2015. It will initially be available to children aged up to five, but will be available to under 12s within a year of that roll-out. How will it work and how will you be able to claim it?
