Welsh Government has announced that the Childcare Offer for Wales has been suspended from 1st April 2020. This is initially for the summer 2020 term, but will be reviewed. This website will be updated as and when we receive further guidance from Welsh Government.
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
Welsh Government is committed to providing 30 hours a week of combined early education and childcare for working parents of three and four year olds, for up to 48 weeks of the year.
Since September 2017, Rhondda Cynon Taf has been one of the Early Implementers for the offer, testing it initially in four areas of RCT.
The Childcare Offer is available in ALL areas of RCT.
