To ask the Secretary of State for Education, what recent estimate he had made of the number of children who will be eligible for 30 hours of funded childcare in the summer term 2018.
16 March 2018
Each term we have stated a target for the number of eligibility codes we expect to be issued to eligible parents. We are expecting to issue a total of 370,000 30 hours eligibility codes by 31 March 2018 for the summer term 2018.
Further information relating to 30 hours codes issued for the summer term was published on 15 March 2018 in ’30 hours free childcare: Spring term 2018’. This can be found at: https://www.gov.uk/government/statistics/announcements/30-hours-free-childcare-spring-term-2018.
