Talk childcare, The offer for Wales
The childcare offer provides 30 hours a week of funded childcare and early education for up to 48 weeks of the year. It can be accessed by eligible working parents of three to four-year-olds. The offer is available from the term after a child’s third birthday until the September following their fourth birthday. Parents are no longer eligible for the offer during term time when their child is offered a full-time school place. However, they can continue to access nine weeks of childcare during holidays.
The offer is a combination of the existing Foundation Phase Nursery (FPN) provision for three and four-year-olds, and additional funded childcare which includes childminders. The offer extends to after school hours, weekends and school holidays.
Rhondda Cynon Taff County Borough Council will process all applications for the childcare offer.
