Complete a funding form

All children that receive funding at nursery are required to complete a funding form known as “EY2c Parent Declaration Form”, so that we can apply for your funding and allocate it to our setting. This includes children that receive:

  • 2 year old funding (15 hours)
  • 3 & 4 year old funding (15 hours)
  • 30 Hours Free Childcare (3+ years only)

These forms are required to be completed when your child first receives funding, and need to be updated whenever your child’s funding type changes. For example if you started off with 3 year old funding but later received 30 Hours free childcare.

These forms are uploaded to Synergy (Cornwall Council’s funding portal) and if they are not completed on time or are incomplete, your application will be rejected and your funding will not be usable at our setting.

What do I need?

To complete a funding form, you will need:

  • Parent / Carer’s national insurance number or NASS number
  • Your child’s eligibility code for funding (you will not have a code if your child is 3 or 4 years old and only receives 15 hours funding)
  • Your child’s eligibility code issue date (this should be listed on your confirmation email)
  • Proof of your child’s date of birth which can be a Birth Certificate, Passport, etc.

On the back of the form you will also have to complete a table under 4. Setting and attendance details, asking you how many hours your child will attend each day. You just need to put the number of hours, not the session times!

You will also have to state whether you intend to spread your funding to another setting. You will have to complete another funding form at your child’s other setting so we recommend you contact your other childminder for support.

Finally there is a section at the bottom that requires your signature and proof of your child’s date of birth. This section has to be completed in person.

Once you have completed the form, please email it back to us on

We will print out your completed funding form and we will get you to sign in when you next drop off / collect your child from nursery. You will need to bring in proof of your child’s date of birth (a Birth Certificate or Passport) so that we can complete the form and put your funding through.


If you do not complete a EY2c Parent Declaration Form, regardless of whether you have successfully applied for funding and have received a confirmation email, you will not be able to use your funding at our setting.

This is not a decision we have made or have any control over – this is a requirement by Cornwall Council that we must follow with no exceptions.

We will not be able to use your funding if your child’s EY2c Parent Declaration Form is not completed in full. We do need every section applicable to your child to be completed including your child’s eligibility code, code issue dates and we will need to see proof of your child’s date of birth on a passport or birth certificate.

If you choose to have your child attend nursery before your EY2c Parent Declaration Form is completed and handed in, you will be charged for childcare.
