The Childcare Offer was suspended in April to allow resources to be refocused, to support the childcare needs of critical workers and vulnerable children through the Coronavirus Childcare Assistance Scheme (C-CAS).
As Wales moves to ease more lockdown restrictions and with schools set to return from September, the Offer will reopen for applications enabling families to start accessing the funded childcare.
Parents who would have been eligible for the Offer in the summer term, but who missed out on a full term because they had not started taking up the Offer before the pandemic, will be able to submit their applications from mid-August.
Applications from parents whose child becomes eligible for the Offer in the autumn term will be considered from the start of September onwards.
Details on the timing and how to apply will be available on local authority websites and through Family Information Services.
