Childcare Offer For Wales in the Vale of Glamorgan

As you will be aware, the Welsh Government has introduced the 30 hour offer of free early education and childcare for working parents, in many local authorities in Wales. The Vale of Glamorgan Council has been informed by the Welsh Government that we will be able to begin testing the offer in the areas identified by the Vale in early 2019. We don’t have a definite date yet, but this should be confirmed in the next couple of weeks.


The Vale Family Information Service will be the point of contact for any enquiries about the offer. Please click here for further information.



We will also run a marketing campaign to raise awareness about the offer with parents and childcare providers. We would appreciate it if you could signpost parents to us if they have any questions, and we will keep their details (with their permission) until we have more information. We will also run sessions with childcare providers so that you are fully informed.

The Childcare Offer for Wales provides 30 hours a week of government-funded early education and childcare for eligible working parents of 3 to 4 year olds, for up to 48 weeks of the year.
