Funded childcare for two-year-olds
Passport for 2s
The 'Passport for 2s' scheme has been introduced to make it easier for those who are entitled to access up to 15 hours of funded early education for their two-year-old.
If you are eligible, you could claim a placement with a school pre-school, a private nursery or pre-school or with a registered childminder. You can find a list of the eligibility criteria.
How it works
If you are entitled to up to 15 hours' funded early education, we will send you a passport letter which can then simply be handed in to a provider of your choice and swapped for up to 15 hours' funded early education. You will also need to provide a copy of your child's birth certificate.
To check if you are entitled, you can fill in an application form online, or contact us on 01744 676541.
