Early Years Funding - Information for childcare providers

Early Years Funding has to be claimed by childcare providers on-line via our funding system.  If you would like to claim funding, you can request to be set up via emailing: Please note we do not backdate funding.

Within the system you will be able to:

  • Check the eligibility of parents or guardians to have funded childcare for their child under the 30 hours funding scheme.
  • Make regular claims for payment from the Local Authority for the funded hours of childcare that you deliver under these schemes.

Please note the link for parents to apply for:  two year old funding.
