Early Years Funding Process


  • The Early Years Funding Portal for providers registered to offer funded places opens once per term for claims. Providers will receive an automated email with your personal link to the portal
  • Providers who have made a claim will receive a confirmation report on the portal, any adjustments to claims after the confirmation report stage can only be made via the Claims Adjustment Form
  • Payments are made monthly based on estimated and actual claims.
