Cheshire East Council's online application system for:
Free 2 Year Old Childcare
The Department for Education recently changed the income thresholds for Early Years Pupil Premium and Two Year Old Early Education Entitlement. Due to this we are currently unable to carry out eligibility checks online. We anticipate that the checks for this criteria will resume soon.
If you require further information please contact the Family Information Service on 0300 123 5033 who will be able to advise you further.
To make an application, please first create an account. If you already have an account then you can login and continue. The links for this are at top of page.
