Early Childhood Services Early Years Disability Access Fund

Early Years Providers in Nottinghamshire are eligible to receive DAF (currently £615 annually, per child) where a three or four year old child is taking up a place and;


  • The child is in receipt of DLA; and;
  • The child is taking up their early years funded entitlement (either some hours or all hours of their entitlement)


Four year olds in primary school reception/foundation stage classes are not eligible for DAF funding but 3 and 4 year olds in maintained nursery settings are eligible for DAF funding.


If a child, eligible for DAF, is splitting their free entitlement across two or more providers their parent(s) will need to nominate the provider to whom they wish the payment to be made. This will usually be the provider where the child is accessing the majority of their free entitlement hours.


If a child receiving DAF moves from one provider to another, the new provider is not eligible to receive DAF for this child within the same academic year. The new provider will need to wait until the following academic year to be able to apply for funding for the child
