Free Childcare for All Two-Year-Olds

Thanks to Plaid Cymru’s influence, free childcare for all two-year-olds will be introduced across Wales as part of our Co-Operation Agreement with Welsh Government.

Plaid Cymru Councillors and Local Authorities have a key role to play in the development and delivery of new childcare services. We will work to ensure that childcare provision is effectively planned and delivered to help some of Wales’s poorest families first.

Emergency Childcare for Key Workers

All four Plaid Cymru-led local authorities established childcare hubs during the early stages of the pandemic to support those children and their families who needed care. This meant that doctors, nurses, teachers and other key workers could continue to deliver essential services.

Ynys Môn County Council ensured that local schools stayed open as support hubs, helping vulnerable children including those eligible for free school meals and the children of key workers. This support continued during the Easter holidays with 25 care centres kept open.
