Terms and Conditions

  • You will find a list of terms and conditions below which you will sign up to on page 4. You may keep this Information Sheet for your records and give the Funding Application to your provider.

    Terms and Conditions

    • You are required to complete a funding application and provide proof of identity and date of birth for your child to support the funding claim. This must be submitted by your childcare provider’s deadline.
    • The provider is not obliged to end the claim without reasonable notification and negotiation unless there are exceptional circumstances.
    • Your free place may be withdrawn if your child is absent, or does not attend regularly unless there are special circumstances and these are agreed with the provider*.
    • Being in receipt of free childcare gives an automatic registration with your local Children’s Centre giving access to regular information on activities in your area.
    • Your information will be held by Cambridgeshire County Council in accordance with the Data Protection Act 1998 and will be shared with other bodies administering public funds to determine the support available, to verify initial and ongoing entitlement and also for the prevention and detection of fraud in connection with your claim. The Education Welfare Benefit Service will make periodic checks using the secure benefit checking system to confirm your entitlement to education benefits. For information on how the Local Authority handles personal data please see a copy of the Early Years Privacy Notice.
