We have free places for 2 year olds in Trafford. If you are eligible, you can apply for up to 15 free hours per week at an approved provider who is part of the scheme. You can get your child's free place from the January, April or September after their second birthday. For full details about who is eligible and the number of hours you can claim see the guide.
Finding a place for your child
There is a choice of providers such as a pre school playgroup, a private day nursery or a childminder. They must have available spaces and be on Trafford's approved list of providers. Look out for the 15 hours a week free childcare logo which means a provider is part of the scheme.
You should find a provisional place for your child before submitting your application. If you are unable to find your child a place, please let us know and we'll help you.
If you have any questions about how this scheme works or need support to access a place for your child, please contact us - we are always happy to help!
