Will my 2 year old no longer get free childcare?

My 2 year old currently gets 15 hours free as I'm unemployed - despite my hard work all year to be employed. I want to go self employed - would her entitlement for free childcare end or does it count for the whole year? She turns 3 in four months time, would it be worth waiting four months till she gets the 15 hours free for that year and just build a client base in the mean time? Thank you! I've been volunteering in a shop to help my employability yet I still have 'no experience' apparently. Ive searched all over the Internet to find information but I can't find anything on what happens when you start working! Thank you in advance :)

Do you have a partner? If so do they work?,
Household income for two year funding is up to about 16000

I don't, it's just me. And if I went self employed it would be Part Time.

You should be fine then

No, once 2y funding (Early Education Funding) is awarded it isn't removed, even if you won the lottery or started a £100 000 a year job it would still apply.

Lovely thank you everyone, I'm quite possibly going to wait a month or so to get things organised etc so I'll see how ready I am before she turns 3. Thank you!

Agree with OddBoots once a child had been granted the funding nothing takes it away. Even if you suddenly became a millionaire!
