    childcare help

    one partner working full time earns 27k
    second is at uni full time

    only child will be 3 years old before 31st dec and I'm asking if from january they will qualify for 15 hours a week free childcare?

    and has the autumn statement made or will make any difference to this?

    thanks

    The government had previously said it would give further support for childcare costs.
    The chancellor announced 30 hours of free childcare for three and four-year-olds will be available from 2017 in England, but only to parents working more than 16 hours and who each earn £100,000 or less.
    Many parents already get a free 15 hours of childcare for three and four-year-olds.

    There has been no change. So if you are eligible, and it sounds that you may be, you should the 15 hours.
    No single thing can define me; not my work, not my politics, not my hobbies, not my vices and not my disability. I'm way more complex than that!
