Childcare Application Form 2021/22
If your child receives Nursery Education vouchers these should be used to fund your childcare while you are at college.
Childcare funding from College will be a top-up only if you are in attendance more than the 15 hours you receive.
Childcare Funding Agreement
- will contribute a maximum of 80% towards your childcare costs up to an overall total sum of £5,000 per year per child (with a maximum amount of £10,000 per household).
