Other help with childcare costs

As well as funded childcare places, there may be other support with childcare costs you might be eligible for.

Which type of funding or financial support is best for me?

The government's Childcare Choices website is a great place to see what financial help and support is available, and which one is right for you and your family.

These may include:

  • tax-free childcare
  • tax credits for childcare
  • Universal Credit for childcare
  • support while you study.
