Has anyone applied for wait lists when their baby isn’t born yet? I see some nurseries asking for the code you receive on the gov gateway website to get onto the wait list? Is this how it works?

All the nurseries near me said they were fully booked until next summer (2025) so yes I joined the wait list. In the funding section of the application I just wrote TBC

@Emmo did you just fill out their forms no actual applications as of yet ? X

I don't think you can apply for funding until right before they go? Don't quote me on that. .

@Emmo neither did I, but I saw one nursery I was looking at ask for the funding code upon applying for wait list which I found silly x

A lot of people will be applying later in the kids life though if they are moving nurseries or something.

Hey lovely, I’m the manager of a private day nursery. You won’t be able to get a code until a few months before your child is eligible at the correct age. For the waiting list nurseries most commonly take a deposit and this will secure your place. If you have any questions on what to look out for or want any advice please let me know xx

@Bethany thank you so much xx
