Childcare workers provide a vital service in keeping the country working. Enabling key workers to work and ensuring that vulnerable children can access childcare during the Covid-19 outbreak will be essential.
The Cwlwm partnership is collecting information, on behalf of Welsh Government, to identify Childcare Practitioners from Childcare Settings which cannot operate, who would potentially be willing to join a bank of staff that may be deployed to work in Childcare Settings elsewhere.
Cwlwm appreciate that these are unprecedented and uncertain times for the Childcare sector and its workforce. The current advice and guidance on Covid-19 is ever changing, so whilst we collect this information in good faith at the time of publication it may not be required. I hope that you will appreciate this and will complete the survey under these assumptions.
Cwlwm brings together the five leading childcare organisations in Wales to deliver a bilingual integrated service that ensures the best possible outcomes for children and families across Wales within the Welsh Government’s ‘whole-system’ approach.
Cwlwm, led by Mudiad Meithrin (MM) in partnership with Clybiau Plant Cymru Kids’ Clubs (CPCKC), Early Years Wales (EYW), National Day Nurseries Association (NDNA Cymru), and Professional Association for Childcare and Early Years (PACEY Cymru), brings together an ability, based on a wealth of experience, to tackle issues within the Childcare and Play sector.
Please submit a short expression of interest so that we may supply details to key partners such as Welsh Government, Local Authorities and Care Inspectorate Wales.
