Consultation on 30-hour free childcare entitlement

The Childcare Act received Royal Assent on 16 March.

The Act gives effect to the Government’s pledge to increase the free childcare entitlement from 15 hours to 30 hours. DfE has now launched a consultation on some of the key elements of the operation and delivery of the 30 hour extended free entitlement. Schools wishing to comment on draft regulations and draft statutory guidance for local authorities can find the documents here. Schools can also send in comments for ISC’s response to legal@isc.co.uk.
