DD is my second child but I can't remember how the system worked first time around. DD turned 3 earlier this month so she will be entitled to government funding after Easter won't she?

Do I need to do anything or do the pre-school do it all themselves? I know I can ask the pre-school themselves but the staff always seem so busy when I arrive and I'm usually rushing for the school run when I pick DD up so I thought I would ask the wise ladies of Mumsnet instead.

Yes she'll be entitled from beginning of summer term, as shes already at pre school they'll sort it out themselves.

Your preschool should be applying soon.

I think you need to let them have a copy of birth cert or something.

Ask at your pre-school and they should tell you everything you need to know

thanks for the replies. You've jogged my memory SMSC - they asked for a copy of DD's birth certificate the other week. That must have been why.

Is she having 5 sessions? My DD's pre-school said she would have to be having 5 to qualify.

DD has two sessions at one pre-school and 3 session at a different Montesorri nursery. I'm taking her there myself this morning (no college now for me because of easter holidays) so I'll ask them this morning.

thanks orinoco. I forgot to ask on thursday so will put a note on DD's bag ready for tuesday. Do you know if I have to do anything different as DD is at two different pre-schools?

yes, thanks Orinoco. I'll speak to both places this week. Be good to bot have to pay out so much money. One is £11 per session and the other is £14!!
