Emergency childcare places are being allocated on a week-by-week basis, as Bridgend County Borough Council is closely monitoring the availability of staff volunteering to run the provision, due to the coronavirus outbreak.

It is essential that any parent who is eligible, and in need of emergency childcare, re-applies to secure your child’s place every week. You still need to re-apply if you are currently receiving emergency childcare.

Apply for emergency childcare for Monday 20 April to Friday 24 April online now ➡️ https://bit.ly/2Jv5kbH

The deadline for applications for next week is 5.00pm Wednesday 15 April.

If you have applied for emergency childcare, and no longer need the care, please let the Council know by emailing EDFSCOVID19@bridgend.gov.uk as staff are volunteering their time to run the settings according to demand.

It remains the local authority’s strong advice that parents should keep their children at home unless absolutely necessary.
