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. 

From September 2018, the pilot is available in ALL areas of RCT.
