Important Reminder: NCS 2020 Contracting Deadline – Monday, 31 August 2020

Dear Service Provider,

This is another reminder that the deadline to contract into NCS for the 2020/21 programme year is this Monday, 31/08/2020. 

If you currently are, or are planning to, register children on NCS for the 2020/21 programme year (as of 24/08/2020), you must have submitted a Funding Agreement for NCS 2020 on the Early Years Hive by Monday, 31/08/2020.

Failure to submit an NCS 2020 Funding Agreement on time will result in current registrations being automatically end-dated, and will affect future funding under NCS.

To contract for NCS 2020, go to the Programmes tab on the Early Years Hive, choose NCS 2020 from ‘Available Programme Applications’ and select Start. Please see the ‘Contracting for the National Childcare Scheme' FAQ for more information on contracting on the Hive.

Please ensure all outstanding attendance returns are completed for NCS 2019/2020 before contracting into the new programme year.
