National wraparound childcare programme​ background

​​The term ‘wraparound childcare’ refers to provision directly before and after the school day during school term time for primary school age children from reception (including children under 5 years of age) to Year 6, from 8am-6pm.​ Many schools already offer enrichment and extra-curricular activities before and after the school day. The principal aim of the programme is to ensure childcare provision is regular, has longer hours and is more dependable for working parents. ​

The government’s ambition is that by 2026, all parents and carers of primary school-aged children who need it will be able to access term time childcare in their local area from 8am-6pm, so that parents can access employment and improve labour market participation.

There will be both revenue and capital funds allocated to fund new and expanded wraparound provision ie: to contribute to start up/expansion and running costs for new places. The funding cannot be used for subsidising the cost of any places or contribute to the running costs of existing wraparound childcare places. The project team are working hard to establish the programme budget and grant application process and will issue guidance in Jan 2024.
