Early years entitlement funding claims.
To provide early years entitlement funded places, providers must agree and adhere to Derbyshire’s Provider Agreement.
Early years entitlement funding claims are submitted via the Derbyshire Provider Portal. Claims must be submitted by deadlines set out in the funding calendar.
Support for providers with early entitlement funding claims, including step-by-step portal guidance and video tutorials, can be found attached to this page.
Further information around early entitlement funding, the contracting process (if providers would like to offer early years entitlement funding places), and business support can be found on the Derbyshire County Council website.
