Statement from Pembrokeshire County Council RE Childcare arrangements:
Pembrokeshire County Council is introducing a childcare hub-based model for critical workers and the families of vulnerable learners. The move follows the UK Government’s restrictions placed on movement this week, and the need for greater social distancing measures.
From 30 March 2020, childcare will only be available to eligible critical workers and at specific locations within the county.
Places must be booked online – and children from vulnerable families will be contacted by a key worker and offered places.
Each setting will be open from 8:00am to 4:00pm until 20 April, after which time all settings will be open from 7:00am – 6:00pm. The online childcare booking applications will be processed centrally on a weekly basis.
There will be no option to turn up without a confirmed booking as most critical workers will know their shifts in advance.
The advice remains to stay at home wherever possible in order to maintain social distancing.
Each setting will have a maximum number of places.
Children 3 -11 can attend the primary settings below:
