Early Years and childcare grants

Funding to ensure there are enough places for children in Oxfordshire.

We have funds to allocate as grants during 2021-22 to support the priorities we identified in the childcare sufficiency market assessment.

Our priorities this year are to:

  • support vulnerable children with access to high-quality childcare
  • fill gaps in supply where parents are having difficulty finding places.

The money is limited, so successful bids will be those that most closely match our investment priorities.
