I refer my hon. Friend, the Member for Romford to the answer I gave on 8 November 2021 to Question 68396.

The universal 15 hours entitlement, available for every child aged 3 and 4, can save parents up to £2,500 per year, and eligible working parents can apply for an additional 15 hours free childcare which can save them up to £5,000 if they use the full 30 hours.
