Enrol your child for early learning and childcare

How do I apply for a place?

Children born between 16 August 2017 and 29 February 2020 are entitled to a funded Early Learning and Childcare place.

Due to the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic, there will be no face-to-face enrolment in Early Learning and Childcare settings this session. Parents and guardians are requested to apply for a place online.

For Early Learning and Childcare places, enrolment week commences Monday 13 February and concludes on Friday 17 February 2023.

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.
