Funded childcare for two-year-olds

How to apply

If you think you are eligible, you can complete our  online application form

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 2s applications must be submitted and given to your chosen provider before Thursday 16th May 2024, 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.
