Childcare Strategy for Wales: Childcare is for Children
The Assembly Government's Childcare Action Plan published in 2002 set out the perspective that children should be at the heart of childcare policy in Wales.
This document sets out in more detail how the Assembly Government will tackle the challenges in the coming years so that our children have the flying start in life they deserve.
The Strategy highlights a number of initiatives that the Assembly Government is taking to promote childcare, including the Flying Start Initiative, and the Torfaen childcare pilot.
The Strategy contains a combination of social and economic measures, with 19 specific and timed actions. These include actions on:
- the needs of disabled children
- local authority duties
- the workforce
- information for parents
- links with Communities First and
- the needs of ethnic minority communities.
The Strategy looks forward to an expansion in quality childcare provision as a result of the measures and actions contained within it.
