The Nursery place reference is a unique number allocated to your child's place at a Children's centre.

What if I don’t have a Nursery place reference?
The Children's centre your child attends will provide you with this number. Please speak to a member of the management team. They can also provide you with more information about online payments and will be happy to talk you through the process.

What if I get a message saying 'Child details given are incorrect'?
Check that you have entered your child's date of birth, the Children's centre and Nursery place reference correctly. If these are correct, please contact your Children's centre to ensure that they have the correct information.

Has your child moved Children’s centre recently?
You will need the new Nursery place reference number for the allocated place at the new Children's centre.

What if my child attends two different Children's centres?
You will need to make a separate payment for each Children's centre with the correct corresponding Nursery place reference number.

Payment amount
There is an upper limit of £1,000 on the amount you can pay in one transaction. If you wish to pay more than £1,000 then you will need to repeat the process for the remaining amount.


Contact your children’s centre management team for more information and guidance.
