You can start claiming the term after your child turns 3. The date you can claim will depend on when their birthday is.

1 January to 31 March the beginning of term on or after 1 April
1 April to 31 August the beginning of term on or after 1 September

ExampleYour child was born on 15 February 2012. They’ll become eligible for free early education and childcare from the start of term following 1 April 2015.

Please speak to the setting manager who will ask you to complete a registration form and a parental agreement to claim the free entitlement funding. You will need to provide evidence of your child’s birth date, such as a birth certificate or valid passport.
