Extended Entitlement: Eligibility

Parents can check their eligibility for the 30 hour extended entitlement with HMRC up to 16 weeks before a child’s third birthday.

A child will need to be three-years-old by 31 August to qualify for the extended entitlement from September.  Any child that is three-years-old between 1 September and 31 December 2017 will not receive the extended entitlement funding until 1 January 2018.

The codes will need re-validating during the Autumn Term. A parents eligibility may have changed during this time, so parents that were eligible during the summer may enter the Grace Period.
