You may be asked by your childcare provider to complete a Parent Declaration Form and provide a current copy of the child’s disability living allowance award letter. This will then be forwarded on to the Local Authority for checking purposes and to allocate funding.
If you are splitting your free entitlement across two or more providers, you will be asked by your Local Authority to nominate the main setting. This is where the Early Years funding will pay the DAF for your child
It would be in your best interest to make sure your child is happy and settled with ;your chosen childcare provider before any DAF paperwork is completed as once payment is made to a provider it cannot be recouped. Therefore, if your child moves to another setting funding will not be available to the 2nd setting.
