What happens next?

  1. After you have made your application, you may be asked for more information or you will receive an eligibility code
  2. Once you have the eligibility code, take the code, your national insurance number and your child’s date of birth, to your chosen childcare provider
  3. You can choose for your child to attend more than one childcare provider; however you cannot use more than two sites in one day and you must give the code to both providers and let them know that you
    are using more than one. This will help them better support your child
  4. You and your childcare provider will agree a start date for your child
  5. You will also be required to reconfirm your eligibility with HMRC every three months. If you do not do this, your child may lose their additional 15 hours of childcare. HMRC will send you a reconfirmation
    email or you can log into your childcare account to reconfirm your child’s eligibility
