The Childcare Offer Wales

When is my child eligible for the Childcare Offer?

The Offer will begin from the term following your child's third birthday until the term following their fourth birthday when they enter full-time education.

Parents can take up the childcare offer at any point during this time period, so long as they are eligible to do so. Parents should be able to access the offer from whichever point they wish during that term, providing their child was eligible from the beginning of that term, or earlier. This includes parents who move into the county or gain employment.

Please note that you will only be eligible from the date stated on the confirmation letter you receive from the Childcare Offer team once your application has been processed.
