Early years and childcare provider portal

Information and guidance for early years and childcare providers on using the provider portal.


Funding payments are paid monthly directly into your bank account.

To receive payments, you must submit funding claims for every period during the time the provider portal is open in each period.

Whilst the portal is open, you must submit:

  • an estimated number of hours covering the first 2 months of a term to receive an interim payment for the first month of the term
  • 'actuals' claims which must include children and parent details and the number of hours you're claiming for in each period

We'll give you a timetable with the important dates that must be kept, to avoid delays to funding payments.

Funding or portal queries should be sent to:
