If you are looking to study or train there are also some funding options open to you as a parent:
This scheme can help to pay for childcare costs for young parents (aged under 20 years) who are studying to further their career. The national Care to Learn free-phone helpline is: 0800 121 8989 or visit www.gov.uk/care-to-learn/overview for more information.
If you are planning on studying, you may be eligible to apply for a childcare grant, parent learners allowance or a student/career loan or grant. Contact the Student Finance Helpline on 0300 100 0607 or visit www.gov.uk/childcare-grant/overview for more information.
If you are studying at a college, you should inquire if the college has an onsite creche, a learner support fund or childcare/access support fund. You may be offered support with the cost of childcare or a subsidised place in the onsite creche if available.
Contact your local college for further details:
All 3 and 4-year-olds and some 2-year-olds (subject to eligibility) can claim up to 15 hours a week of free childcare over a minimum of 38 weeks. This amounts to 570 hours a year and is commonly known as the free entitlement.
