Please make sure you are aware of any additional charges before your child attends your chosen childcare provider.
The 15 hours free childcare offer is not intended to cover the costs of meals, other consumables (such as nappies or sun cream), additional hours or additional activities (such as trips). Providers may charge a fee for these additions.
However, you must not be required to pay any fee as a condition of taking up a 15 hour place, and must be offered alternative options. If you choose to pay for these, it is an arrangement between you and the childcare provider.
