Current Childcare Use

The Government has announced working families will be able to access 30 hours of free childcare for their 3 and 4 year old's from September 2017.

Swindon Borough Council has been chosen to be an early implementer, meaning a small number of families will be able to access additional funding a year early from September 2016.

To help the Department for Education and Local Authority plan for September 2017, it is important  to understand the childcare needs of working families to ensure sufficient places are available as flexibly as individual families require.
