Enrol your child for early learning and childcare

How do I apply for a place?

Children born between 15 August 2019 and 28 February 2022 are entitled to a funded Early Learning and Childcare place. Parents and guardians are encouraged to apply for a place online.

For Early Learning and Childcare places, enrolment week commences Monday 12 February and concludes on Friday 16 February 2024.

Enrol your child for ELC

Parent and guardians with no access to the online process can request a paper copy of the enrolment form from their chosen setting during ELC enrolment week. For all settings including Local Authority settings, partner settings and commissioned Childminders, please contact your chosen setting directly and they will be able to advise you on their own enrolment arrangements.
