Early years funding

This supports the national scheme administered by local authorities to offer free early learning and childcare places to all children aged 3 and 4 and some 2 year olds meeting certain criteria. This includes the extended entitlement for working parents (processed by HMRC) and foster carers (processed by the Local Authority). 

New childcare providers

If you are a new or existing childcare provider and wish to start drawing down early years funding for 2,3 and 4 year olds you will need to  be Ofsted registered and have agreed to the conditions within the Cambridgeshire Local Agreement. If you are interested in setting up a new provision or are in the process of doing so please contact PlacePlanningReferrals0-19@cambridgeshire.gov.uk .
