Are there any restrictions on how I use the hours?

You can use your hours in the following ways:

  • a maximum of two childcare providers in one day
  • a maximum of 10 hours in one day
  • a maximum of 15 hours over one week
  • taken between 6am – 8pm any day of the week

You do not have to take up the full 15 hours. It is important to check when your chosen provider offers free hours to make sure you can take them at a time which suits you.
