Early Learning and Childcare Applications

Eligibility for entitlement

It can get a bit confusing working out when your child’s free entitlement can start depending on when their birthday is. The funding dates for 2021/2022 are as follows:

  • Children who reach 3 years of age between 1 March 2021 and 12 August 2021 can take up their ELC placement from August 2021.
  • Children reaching 3 years of age between 13 August 2021 and 28 February 2022 can take up their ELC placement the day after the child’s 3rd birthday.
  • Parents/carers of children applying to North Lanarkshire Council from another local authority should be guided by the Cross Boundary Protocol.

Applying for an early learning and childcare placement

Children will normally attend an ELC establishment closest to their home but you can apply to any establishment, in accordance with the admissions policy, should you wish to do so.

Applications should be returned to your first choice of ELC provider by Friday, 12 February 2021. All applications should be sent to the enquiries email of the receiving ELC.  Our email address is enquiries@holycross.n-lanark.sch.uk
