Over the summer holiday period, schools will no longer be providing emergency childcare to the children of critical workers or vulnerable children. The local authority intends to signpost parents towards existing Care Inspectorate Wales (CIW) registered childcare providers, who, as a result of a recent Welsh Government announcement, from 22 June will be in a position to increase operations and therefore be available to provide childcare during the summer holidays.


Parents requiring childcare are therefore encouraged to use these registered, private providers.
