Childcare for keyworker parents and carers of children age 0-4 years

If you are a keyworker in a single-parent family or, where both caregivers are keyworkers in a two-parent family, and are unable to look after your child at home, you can now apply to the new Coronavirus Childcare Assistance Scheme C-CAS. Children should stay at home wherever possible and if it is safe to do so. In exceptional circumstances, consideration will be given to applications from families in which there is only one key worker.



If you are unsure whether you are a Keyworker, you can check the Welsh Government Definition:


If you are a keyworker parent or carer of a school age child, you will need to apply to the Childcare Hub:

Childcare Sufficiency Assessment (CSA) 

The Vale of Glamorgan has compiled information to inform the Childcare Sufficiency Assessment 2017 as part of its statutory duty under the Childcare Act 2006. The intention of the report is to provide an assessment of the current levels of childcare within the Vale and the gaps identified via consultation with a variety of stakeholders. This will inform an Action Plan to support future work within childcare.
