The Childcare Bill: support for working parents

The Childcare Bill will double free childcare available for all working parents of 3 and 4 year-olds to 30 hours a week. And to underline our commitment to support working families, the Prime Minister is announcing plans to introduce the changes for some families a year earlier than planned, together with a commitment to increase the average funding rates paid to childcare providers.

Our message is clear – this Government is on the side of working people – helping them get on and supporting them at every stage of life.

That is exactly why we are pressing ahead with these reforms – so that not a moment is lost in getting on with the task – going further than ever before to help with childcare costs, helping hardworking families and giving people the opportunity to get into work.
