30 Hours

30 Hours Free Childcare for 3 and 4 Year Olds

From January 2019 we will be a registered provider for the Welsh Government provision of 30 hours free childcare for working parents of 3 and 4 year olds.

Parents will receive a combined total of 30 hours of early education and childcare, with the current 10 hours a week available to all parents forming part of the offer. 10 hours a week can therefore be taken across 5 days at 2 hours per day, with the remaining 20 hours chunked together as required to fit in with working hours.

Who can apply?

Families where both parents work with each parent earning the equivalent of 16 hours a week at minimum wage (£125.28 per week) can apply.  Single parents can also apply on a single wage if they are the main carer.

How do I apply?

Once you have visited the nursery and provisionally reserved your place, you apply through Newport County Council, who are running the scheme on behalf of Monmouthshire, and choose Monmouth Montessori Nursery when prompted to enter a provider. Online applications open on 12th November and the application takes 2-3 weeks to approve.

What do I do now?
