Childcare for critical workers for 0-3 year old children

The Welsh Government has announced that it is providing temporary crisis funding to support the cost of childcare for pre-school children of parents whose jobs are critical to Wales’ response to COVID-19.  Under the Coronavirus Childcare Assistance Scheme, a parent / guardian is eligible to receive Government-funded childcare if:

  • They have a child, or children, of pre-school age; and
  • Their jobs are critical to Wales’ response to COVID-19

We are urging parents to please consider very carefully whether it absolutely essential that you have childcare. For example, is your work critical to the covid-19 response and do both parents work away from the home so there is no-one available to look after your child.  If your work is critical to the Covid-19 response, and your child cannot stay at home, then your childcare will be prioritised.

Welsh Government have announced that school children of all ages will be returning to school on Monday 29th June 2020 in a phased approach with staggered times, smaller groups as a means of checking in, catching up and prepare sessions for the Autumn School Term.

The whole Carmarthenshire team are an asset to us childminders and I know from speaking to other childminders in the UK that they do not have such a fantastic team behind them. I could not recommend this enough for anyone who would like to become a childminder in Carmarthenshire.
