Carers allowance and 30hrs childcare

Hi all,
I have just been awarded carers for my 4yo, he is going back to preschool in September, last yr I was awarded 30hrs free childcare as I am self employed and was planning to be earning over 135 a week, I dont earn that now so claimed carers, would carers allowance be counted as an income to claim the 30hrs free childcare?
I'm so confused!
