Early Years Funding Proposal

Closed 3 Mar 2022

Opened 16 Feb 2022


North Northamptonshire Council (NNC) is required to consult with Schools Forum on the proposed arrangements for the Early Years Funding Formula for Private, Voluntary and Independent settings (PVI), Childminders and Maintained Nursery Sector (MNS) funded providers. Schools forums must also be consulted on changes to local early years funding formulas, including agreeing central spend by 17th March 2022, although the final decision rests with the local authority. Unless a disapplication is authorised by the Secretary of State, the formula cannot be changed after the financial year has started.

NNC is committed to supporting and enabling the funded and non-funded Early Years sector to deliver sustainable and high-quality provision within North Northamptonshire. The proposal available within this report has been based on a safe and sound balance of our commitment to passport as much DSG funding to providers, as well as being able to meet our statutory duties as a council in delivering a high-quality service to the Early Years Sector.

Please read the Early Years Funding Proposal Document before starting this consultation.
