2 year old funding

In order to offer 2 year old funded places you must ensure you meet the requirements which are:

  • You must be registered and approved by Solihull MBC to offer Early Education Funded places.
  • You must have a current Ofsted grade of 'Good' or 'Outstanding'. If you have not had your first inspection then you can offer 2 year old funded places in the meantime.

To claim 2 year old funding for a child you must first ensure that the child has been approved by Solihull MBC. The parent should be able to show you their approval letter or you can contact the Family Information Service to check on 0800 389 8667.

Where a parent has evidence of approval for 2 year old funding under the National Criteria from another Local Authority, the parent must apply to Solihull Family Information Service via www.solihull.gov.uk/2yearoldfunding. We will ask the parent for evidence of approval before their child starts their funded place.

If parents need any support or advice about 2 year old funding then they can contact the Family Information Service on 0800 389 8667 or familyinfo@solihull.gov.uk. Without an approved application from the parent we cannot pay you for 2 year old funding so please ensure you see evidence of approval from Solihull Family Information Service before 2 year old funding starts.
