Childcare Offer for Wales reminder

The Childcare Offer for Wales provides up to 30 hours per week of government funded early education and childcare for eligible working parents and eligible parents in education or training of three and four-year-olds, for up to 48 weeks of the year.

The 30 hours is made up of a minimum of 10 hours early education and a maximum of 20 hours childcare.  The amount of childcare you can receive will depend on the amount of early education offered by each local authority.

Parents can choose up to two providers for term-time provision and up to two providers for holiday provision.

You can now apply via a new national digital service, where you can receive updates and manage your application on the go.

Eligible children will be able to access the childcare element of the Childcare Offer from the term following their third birthday until they are eligible to receive a full-time education place.

Please visit the Welsh Government website to check if you are eligible for this offer.
