The Department for Education have informed us that they are upgrading the software that allows you to check your eligibility status on this website on Tuesday 11th December between 15:00 - 17:00. Unfortunately during this period you may be unable to get an indicative eligibility result.
Eligibility CheckerYou will need a valid email address in order to use this eligibility checker. If you do not have an email address, you can ring our Family Information Service (FIS) on 0300 123 6712.
To get started
We will check whether you are eligible and send you an email within ten working days, however, during our busiest periods, we cannot guarantee this. If you are not eligible we will routinely re-check your information and send you another email if you become eligible.
The personal details that you provide will only be used for the purposes of providing you with information about your eligibility to claim free childcare for your two-year old and to check your eligibility for the Early Years Pupil Premium.
