30 hours for child just turned 3

Hi all,

My child just turned 3 on the 14th January so I have tried to see if I could apply for the 30 hours code from the HMRC website. It has been accepted and I have received a code.

The nursery are only accepting 15 hours. Would the 30 hour code be the same code required by the nursery for the 15 hours?

Also, I presume the 15-30 hours are only accepted from April 1st as she has just turned 3 in January. Is that correct?

Many Thanks

You don't need a code for 15 as it's universal. Yes term after turn 3 so from after Easter

DS does 15 hours and did not require any code. If you are only going to put him in for 15 hours you prob don't need a code. Ask the nursery. Generally yes, the hours apply in the first term after they turn 3, so April.

Thanks for the quick responses. Well I've got the 30 hours code if we do decide to change nurseries.

I have noticed nurseries are charging extra fee's if accepting the 30 hours, so would have to consider that if looking for another nursery.

Best Wishes.

You don't need a code for 15 hours
Your child will get the 15 hours from 1st April
You won't get 30 hours if the nursery is not participating in the scheme
You will need to reconfirmed your code every 3 months to continue claiming it

I think you can split it if you need some kind of rap around care at any point, but this would mean little one having to get use to two setups.
