New Pembrokeshire County Council Childcare Arrangements


Tuesday 31st Mar 2020


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 Monday, 30th March, Childcare will only be available to eligible critical workers and at specific locations within the county.

Places must be booked by telephone 01437 776350 or via email: covid19childcarebookings@pembrokeshire.gov.uk and children from vulnerable families will be contacted by a key worker and offered places.

Further information and a booking form will be available on the Council’s website in the next few days.

Each school setting will be open from 8 am to 4 pm until 20th April after which time all settings will be open from 7 am to 6 pm.

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.
