Free Entitlement (FE) providers must sign a provider declaration signature form via the portal whenever a new agreement is released. This allows you to continue to be registered to offer FE and be paid for eligible children.
Providers without funded children may continue registration if they wish, so that they are ready to take funded children without having to re-register for the scheme.
Check when the next declaration is due on When to use the portal.
Providers who wish to start offering FE again or for the first time, can find out how to sign up on Providing free childcare for 2, 3 and 4 year olds.
