15 Hours Free Childcare - anyone with experience of Lambeth council processes?

Does anyone know how long it typically takes to be credited with the "15 hours" fee reduction on nursery fees?
We live in Lambeth & my daughter attends a private nursery in Herne Hill/Dulwich area, 2 full days each week. She was 3 in Jan 2013 & should be eligible for allowance from 1st April 2013.
The nursery have my daughter's birth certificate & my signed declaration re wanting to claim the allowance. Apparently, the nursery now waits for Lambeth to contact them before the grant or fee reduction or however I should describe it is made. Then, I assume, I'll receive a revised invoice & can amend my standing order payments to the nursery etc etc.
Easter may well delay the admin & perhaps it is routine that these things are back-dated ... But, bottom line: I haven't received any notification re the reduction & have no sense when I'm likely to.
Grateful to hear the experience of any more experienced heads!
