Start is a Welsh Government initiative which aims to create
positive outcomes for children aged 0 to 3 in the most
disadvantaged communities in Wales.
The scheme provides free, quality part-time childcare for 2- to
3-year-olds along with health visiting services, parenting support
and language and play sessions. The scheme is provided through a
grant to local authorities.
Registered childminders in Wales are already contributing by
delivering Flying Start childcare across some areas of Wales
Welsh Government has committed to doubling the number of
children benefitting from the scheme over the coming years and have
announced that a further £55m has been set aside to fund this
PACEY Cymru is working with officials in Welsh Government
to highlight the role that registered childminders play in
delivering Flying Start and improving outcomes for children and
families through the scheme.
