Funded childcare for 2 year olds
5. After you apply
You will get a letter or email confirming your eligibility. You will need this to book a place with your chosen nursery or childminder.
The provider will need a copy of your child's birth certificate to confirm your child's date of birth and ensure that they are of an eligible age to access a funded place.
Once you have agreed your hours or sessions for your child you should be asked to sign a Parental Agreement with your nursery or childminder.
This provides you and the provider with a document which clearly shows the agreed hours or sessions that your child should attend. This helps to protect everyone if there is a dispute, particularly one that involves money (in rare circumstances the provider may ask you to pay for any hours that your child has mistakenly received from them).
