Hive Announcement 08.11.2023 – Review and Confirm window open until 17 November

​Dear Early Learning and Care and School Age Childcare Providers, 

Review and Confirm  

This is a reminder that the November Review and Confirm window for the 2023/2024 programme call is now open until the 17 November.

This process enables Core Funding payments to continue by facilitating Partner Services to review their most recent application information and either confirm that no changes have occurred or submit an application change.  


Preparing for Review and Confirm 

Prior to completing the November Review and Confirm window the below is required:

  • Partner Services must upload their completed Quality Action Plan to their Service Profile prior to completing the November Review and Confirm window.   
  • Partner Services must ensure that all data captured in their Service Profile in relation to their Service Level, Rooms, Sessions and Staff is up to date prior to completing the Review and Confirm window.
  • Your Core Funding Application Module must be at status “Approved”.  If your application is at “Referred back”, you must address the reason for refer back and then complete the review and confirm process. 

Failure to upload the Quality Action Plan will result in Core Funding payments being placed on hold until such a time as the Quality Action Plan process is completed and the November Review and Confirm is approved.

To support services in uploading their Quality Action Plan and completing their Review & Confirm form, additional resources are available on the Core Funding Documents page on the Early Years Hive.  

Core Funding Payments

After the review and confirm window is closed, Core Funding payments will only continue to be processed as per the payment schedule on HIVE provided your November Review and Confirm is at an approved status. 

Best wishes, 

The Early Years Team
