Childcare Offer for Wales

Apr 2, 2019

The new Childcare Offer coming into the Bridgend area April 2019!.. the scheme provides up to 30 hours a week of funded childcare and early education for up to 48 weeks of the year. It can be accessed by eligible working parents of three to four-year-olds. The offer is available from the term after a child’s third birthday until the September following their fourth birthday. Parents are no longer eligible for the offer when their child is offered a full-time school place. However, they can continue to access nine weeks of childcare during holidays.

The offer is a combination of the existing Foundation Phase Nursery (FPN) provision for three and four-year-olds, and additional funded childcare which includes childminders. The offer extends to after school hours, weekends and school holidays.
