2 year old funding after job change

Im currently receiving two year old funding for DS as I'm working part time so not earning over the £16,000. DS is to turn 3 in May, however I have been offered a new job which is full time and so will obviously be earning over the £16,000. The funding for three year olds doesn't start until the term after there Birthday so September. Does this mean I'm going to have to pay for childcare from May - september. Obviously July & August aren't covered by funding anyway.

Hope this makes sense?

Check with your local authority. Ours don't take the 2 year old funding away in those circumstances.
Each LA will probably have different rules.

Once you are entitled to the 2 year funding them it can't be taken away whatever change in circumstances you have
It stays in place till the 3 year funding kicks in
You won't have to pay

In my Authority, once the 2 year old funding has been approved, it stays in place until the 3 year old funding starts. I think this is a national policy, but it would be worth checking with your Local Authority just to reassure yourself.
