30 hours free childcare

If you are returning to England from Scotland, Wales, Northern Ireland and overseas, you can now apply for a manual 30 hours free childcare code before you return
Directorate Children & Young People (DCYP) has worked closely with Department for Education (DfE) and HM Revenue & Customs to ensure parents (Service and entitled MOD Civilians) returning to England from Scotland, Wales, Northern Ireland and overseas can apply for a 30 hours childcare code before they arrive back in England. This will ensure that entitlements aren't missed, especially when parents move mid-term and would not be able to apply within termly deadlines set by DfE. Please see the attached poster for all the information parents require. 30 hours free childcare DIN has been updated to reflect changes.
