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).
- Early Years funding rates
- To find out more about the legal framework and principles go to the Early Years Funding Code of Practice for Local Authorities.
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 PlacePlanningReferrals0firstname.lastname@example.org .
