Coronavirus Information (Childcare)

Following Welsh Government guidance, childcare provision is now closed to all families apart from those where parents are key workers or children are vulnerable. Parents that fall into this category may be required to provide identification and/or a letter from their employer stating their role is a key role.


If you fall into the category of key workers, have a child below school age that cannot be cared for full time at home and you wish to access free childcare, please complete the form at the bottom of this page and return it to [email protected]. A member of the Early Years team will be in touch as soon as possible to discuss options and to support you in accessing funded childcare.
