The Childcare Offer For Wales

What is the Childcare Offer?

The Childcare Offer for Wales provides eligible parents with a mixture of early education (between 10 – 12.5 hours) and childcare (between 17.5 – 20 hours) for children aged 3 or 4 up to 48 weeks per year.

Parents are not required to access their early education entitlement as a prerequisite to accessing the childcare element of the Offer, however, their entitlement will include these hours whether they access them or not.

If additional early education hours are offered/accepted, the amount of childcare hours will be reduced accordingly.

Please note that funding for the Offer will not begin until a start date has been confirmed and the application process has been completed. Funding will not be back dated.
