yes clients can split the funding over two providers

The minimum amount of hours from one provider is either 2.5 or 3 hours (sorry cant think off top of my head) so yes you will be fine. I had one going to pre school 13 hours and was going to claim the 2 hours from me but couldn't. :rolleyes:

Sometimes the rules vary between local authorities so you should check with your local people before giving assurances.

In Somerset we can provide between 2.5 and 15 hrs and we can share care with one other setting, we put hrs required on a form and hrs at another named setting in the box provided.
