The Childcare Offer Wales

What is the Childcare Offer?

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.

The Childcare Offer provides 30 hours a week of funded Foundation Phase Nursery (FPN) early education and childcare for eligible working parents of three and four-year-olds for up to 48 weeks of the year.

As the Childcare Offer for Wales is a combined offer, made up of FPN education and childcare provision, children must be of an age to be eligible to access both these elements at the same time.

The offer is a maximum of 30 hours of combined education and childcare.  If parental eligibility has been established, children will usually receive the childcare element of the offer from the term after their third birthday, until they are offered a fulltime education place.
