Welsh Government recognises that affordable, available, and accessible childcare enables parents to work, supporting its drive to increase economic growth, tackle poverty and reduce inequalities.
In 2016, Welsh Government invited all local authorities to register an expression of interest to become an early implementer of the offer.
Rhondda Cynon Taf was successful with its expression of interest to become an early implementer. For the purpose of the offer, four areas in Rhondda Cynon Taf were chosen to test the pilot.
