Early Education Funding

If you are a childcare provider registered to offer Early Education Funding for 2, 3 and 4 year olds, there is important guidance available.

The Provider Agreement outlines local policies and procedures.

You can also read the Early Education and Childcare Statutory Guidance for Local Authorities.

The Provider Agreement covers:

  • the delivery of the government-funded entitlement
  • the eligibility of providers and sources of support and guidance
  • payment mechanisms and the process involved

You can request a hard copy of this document by emailing childcare@poole.gov.uk.

There are several references to forms and guides within the Provider Agreement you can view or print:

If you are a parent or carer please visit the Family Information Service for further information on Early Education Funding.
