Childcare Support

Childcare can be expensive but there is support available towards the costs of childcare. This page will cover some of the support options that may be available to you. 

The government’s Childcare Choices website provides information on the different support available and a eligibility checker, helping parents find the right childcare support to suit them.


Childcare support offers

Parents might be eligible to use more than one childcare scheme together. Find out more on the Childcare Choices website.

Choosing a childcare provider

You will need to choose one or more eligible childcare providers that have the capacity to offer you a childcare place/s for the hours you need.

Visit our Childcare options page for further information on the different types of childcare provider.

You can find local childcare providers in the Sheffield Directory listings

Additional charges may apply for certain services at specific childcare providers, and not all entitlements may be available at all times of day.  Please check with providers for any restrictions or additional charges.
