Check eligibility for free early education & childcare for two year olds
If you live in Gateshead, you can use this system to check if your two year old is eligible for a free education and childcare place at a day nursery, pre-school or with a childminder.
You will need to create an account if you haven’t used the system before. If you are an existing user and have a password, you can log in to check your child's eligibility online.
If you don’t want us to contact you about your application, phone Gateshead Family Information Service on 0191 433 5118 or email firstname.lastname@example.org.
The eligibility check is based on economic criteria and you will need your National Insurance (NI) or NASS number to complete the check. If you feel you meet the Special Educational Needs or Care and Adoption Criteria, or you are applying from outside Gateshead, please contact the Family Information Service on 0191 433 5118 or email email@example.com
Please note applications for 3 and 4 year childcare places can not be made on this system. Please see www.gateshead.gov.uk/freechildcare for more info. To apply for extended childcare, 30 hours free for working parents, please go to www.chidcarechoices.gov.uk
