We understand there is a lot of information regarding Early Education Funding so we would advise you to complete the following steps before submitting a claim to the Family Information Service.
These details will not be supplied to any third party.
We recommend you become familiar with the Provider Agreement, the latest Statutory Guidance for Early Education Funding and the rates at which funding is paid. These can be found on the Forms and Guidance webpage. For information on the amount of funding that is available each financial year a financial planner can be found on our homepage.
Before claiming, every parent / guardian must be made aware of the Privacy Notice to advise that the child’s information will be passed onto the Department for Education. This can found on the Forms and Guidance webpage.
Claiming for the first time
When you are ready to start claiming we will need to set you up with a provider portal account. Please contact us to request an account via email@example.com. For guidance around claiming on the Provider Portal please click here.
