Early Years and Childcare Capital Funding
We are inviting capital bids to support sufficient free early education entitlement places for 2, 3 and 4 year olds across the borough.
Bids will be assessed against the priority to achieve / maintain sufficiency of high quality provision and provide value for money. Refer to the latest Childcare Sufficiency Assessment.
Projects will be expected to be delivered by 31 August 2019.
The closing date for capital funding bids last year was 29 March 2018. The deadline this year was 11 March 2019. The change in date has caused some confusion. Therefore, the deadline for the current round of applications has been extended to noon on 29 March 2019.
