30 Hours – Early Years Provider Hub

The Early Years Provider Hub brings local childcare providers and your Council Early Years team into a single shared digital space and makes it a breeze to manage the flow of information between you, including funding claims for the new 30 hours entitlement.

Now that the funding allocations from Digital Accelerate have been announced by the Department for Education (DfE), Open Objects is talking to local authorities about their plans for 30 Hours in September.

All through April, we’re travelling up and down the country to demonstrate how the Early Years Provider Hub automates eligibility checking and management of funding claims in a way that suits your providers and will save time and money for your Early Years Team.
