Welsh Government have announced that the Childcare Offer for Wales, will be closed to children due to start after the Easter holidays. Children eligible for The Childcare Offer before the 18th March 2020 can resume their funded place from the 22nd June 2020. C-CAS applications are now closed
This scheme will fund childcare costs for pre-school children (children under the age of 5 years) of key workers excluding childcare provider retention fees. We will also continue to fund childcare provision for vulnerable children.
C-CAS will continue to fund childcare costs for pre-school children until the 31st of August 2020, at which time it will be reviewed by Welsh Government.
From the 17th of July 2020, School age children (5 years and over) are no longer eligible to access C-CAS with their pre-school age siblings.
Applications for C-CAS are now closed. If you are the parent of Vulnerable child or you work within a School, you may still be eligible to apply. Please contact firstname.lastname@example.org for an application form, including proof of employment in a school.
