If your child will be 3 or over by the 31 August 2017 you can apply now through the childcare service section of the gov.uk website

At the start of your application process you’ll be asked to create a Government Gateway account if you don’t already have one.

The website will then guide you through setting up your own childcare service account. If you are unable to apply online or have any problems with the application process you can contact the childcare service for support.

Customer Interaction Centre on 0300 123 4097

Once your eligibility is confirmed you will be given an 11 digit ‘eligibility code’ to take to your chosen childcare provider. You can find this in the 30 hours free childcare section of your new childcare service account. It will usually start with 5000 but some temporary codes may begin with 11. 

We will ask you to complete and sign a 30 Hours Free  Childcare Eligibility Form. 

This will allow Surrey's Finance and Practice Team to check and confirm your eligibility. You will need to reconfirm this every three months to continue claiming the extra hours.

If you disagree with the eligibility outcome you will be able to use the HMRC's review and appeals process.
