30 Hours – Early Years Provider Hub

The national launch of the 30 hours free childcare policy in September 2017 has seen working parents with three and four-year-old children able to claim double the amount of free hours than previously available to them. The challenge for local authorities is to build on the success of the initiative and encourage greater uptake by families, ensure the longer-term sustainability of the policy and further develop their local childcare markets.

The Early Years Provider Hub brings local childcare providers, families and council Early Years teams into a shared online space and enables the flow of information. It enables a secure end-to-end process that supports headcount, making and handling of funding claims and validation of new pupil eligibility. Integrating with council payment systems, The Hub offers records for audit purposes, reminder workflows and alerts and has built-in processes for Early Years Census completion. With the new 30 Hours Market Development Module local authorities can see a fortnightly ward-by-ward snapshot, a record of 30 hours capacity, demand, take-up and vacancies.
