How to apply for
30 Hour Funded Places
Step 1: Head Online
Head online to the Government Childcare gateway below, create an account or sign in.
Step 2: Fill In The Form
Fill in the application form. If you are eligible for the 30 free hour’s childcare, you will receive an 11 digit code, which will be confirmation that an account has been set up for you on the HMRC system.
You will be required to bring in your 11 digit code to nursery, this will then be verified via our funding team at Wigan.
Also on the account you created, you may be eligible for tax free childcare.
Step 3: Validate Your Account
Every 12 weeks (3 months) you will receive a text/ email to instruct you to validate your account for the next term. This could be sent to your email account or your gateway account. This needs to be done promptly so you don’t miss the deadline.
This is a relationship between yourselves and HMRC. You will give Footprints the 11 digit code and we will verify it.
