Confirming your eligibility

If you are eligible, you will receive an 11 digit eligibility code to take directly to your chosen participating childcare provider along with your National Insurance Number and proof of your child’s date of birth.

They will then gain your written permission to verify the code. Once verified a start date will be agreed with the provider.

Your provider will then claim funding for your child's place from Harrow Council.
