Early Years.

Our Early Years module aims to tackle the complexities faced by early years services and providers and deliver a user-friendly, streamlined experience. Some key features include:

  • Parent, professional and provider portals
  • Eligibility checking service, headcount, estimates and mid-term changes
  • Two year-old funding; under two year-old referrals and placements
  • 30-hour funding
  • Special educational needs and disability (SEND) panel funding and applications
  • Portage & inclusion case management
  • Provider information/terms & payment rates
  • Safeguarding audits
  • Payment calculations
  • Early Years Census & reporting
  • Attainment tracking

Early Years Funding is a valuable business area and requires dependable and trustworthy software, without which underspend or overspend can have a considerable impact. Early Years Funding systems manage both local authority and external early years providers spend.

We provide a broad range of functionality as standard within our Education Case Management system, along with accompanying Portals to support the local authority. Importantly, this software is also available to providers supporting them in making up-to-date and valid submissions for funding of all ages. By using an integrated and instant Eligibility Checker Service (ECS), providers and the local authority can make instant decisions on claims. Providers can ensure that the type of funding is valid at the point of data entry and submission to the local authority.

Key Benefits.

  • Supports economic and non-economic criteria for two year-old funding applications
  • Integration with ECS for two year-old funding applications, pupil premium and eligibility checks for 30 hours funding. Checks are automated and can be scheduled
  • Census is integrated into the simple headcount submission wizard
  • Integrated attainment tracker for EYFS which flows through to the Virtual School

Key Components.

Establishment Portal

Early Years providers can make use of an online portal to manage their ‘Live Register’ digitally via mobile devices or laptops to accurately record children in the 0-5 category, along with their funded/private (optional) hours. Providers are guided through a live registration form that validates the child's age and their entitlement.

Reducing the Burden

With our Education Case Management system and the Portal in place, the local authority can automatically receive funded hours claims for submission from providers, without the need for manual entry.

Clear Communication

Approved submissions can be instantly notified to the provider via the Portal along with a remittance slip of the funding amounts approved.
