Childcare Offer for Wales illustration

Tuesday 15th November 2022

The Childcare Offer for Wales has just launched its national digital service. This service replaces the old system where parents would apply for the Offer via their Family Information Service. The new service takes a national approach, is fully bilingual and makes applying for the Offer quicker and easier for eligible parents.

Benefits of the Offer include:

  • Receiving up to 30 hours of funded early education and childcare a week, for up to 48 weeks of the year
  • Childcare support during some of the school holidays
  • Access to hundreds of childcare settings across Wales

Parents will be able to check their eligibility via our online eligibility checker. Newly eligible parents can begin their application and read more about how to apply.

All parents looking to access the Offer from January 2023 will need to apply online via the national digital service.

Please see attached toolkit. This toolkit provides a suite of materials to help promote the Offer and direct new parents to the national digital service.

Further information about the Offer can be found at Childcare Offer for Wales
