Welsh government to fund free childcare for key workers

The Welsh Government is stopping the ‘free’ childcare offer of up to 30 hours for new applicants to the scheme and will instead use the money to fund pre-school childcare for key workers’ children.

Conservatives outline ideas for working families

 

The Welsh Government has announced that it will offer free childcare to all pre-school children of key workers, including out of hours care.

It will do so by suspending the childcare offer of up to 30 hours for three and four year olds for those due to start it after the Easter holidays.

Vulnerable pre-school children will also have access to free childcare. The free childcare excludes childcare provider retention fees.

The Government says this is initially for a three-month period, at which time it will be reviewed. Parents of children who already access the childcare offer will not be affected.

    Why is this being rolled out only in Wales and not in the other countries of the UK? My wife and I are both key workers and have no choice to work and pay for nursery places. If we lived in Wales this would be free. I would suggest this would be a nice sign of appreciation.
