What isn't included with free childcare
Certain items may not be included, for example:
- sun cream
- additional hours
- additional activities (such as trips).
Childcare providers may charge a fee for these. If you choose to pay for these it is an arrangement between you and the childcare provider.
However, you must not be required to pay any fee as a condition of taking up a 15 hours place, and must be offered alternative options (for example, providing your own food or nappies).
