Funded childcare for two-year-olds
How to apply
If you need further help or advice before you apply contact our Funded Early Education Entitlement team:
Telephone: 01744 676541 / 676542 or 676557
Passport for under 2's applications must be submitted and given to your chosen provider before Thursday 18 May 2023, which is the deadline for the summer term placements.
After applying, if you are entitled to funding, we will send you out a 'Passport for 2s' in the post or via email - like the one pictured opposite.
This passport can then simply be handed in to a provider of your choice and swapped for up to 15 hours' funded early education. You will also need to provide a copy of your child's birth certificate.
