St Joseph’s Cathedral Primary School – Wraparound
We are delighted to be able to launch our wraparound childcare facility for any children attending our school aged 3 and 4. This will enable children to attend our nursery from 08:50am until 3:15pm.
St Joseph’s Cathedral Primary School is CSSIW registered and, as a registered childcare provider, we are able to participate in the government funded childcare scheme. Children whose parents meet the eligibility criteria will therefore be able to access our nursery facility from 08:50am until 3:15pm free of charge.
We also accept childcare vouchers.
For parents not eligible for the free childcare scheme there is a daily fee of £10.
Government Funded Childcare
Government funded childcare is available from the term following the child’s 3rd birthday and will continue until the child starts reception class the September after their fourth birthday.
All parents in the household must work the equivalent of at least 16 hours per week at national minimum wage or national living wage, therefore earning at least £117.00 per week.
Whilst initially Swansea Council only introduced this scheme to a number of pilot areas they anticipate that they will be in a position to fully roll out the childcare offer across Swansea by January 2019
