In August 2016, the Welsh Government launched the #talkchildcare campaign to gather the views of parents and childcare providers on the new childcare offer currently being piloted in counties across Wales.
The campaign aimed to give parents and childcare providers the opportunity to express their views on the current access to childcare in Wales, what they want from the new offer and to ensure that childcare providers are aware of what is going to be on offer.
The feedback and responses gathered have since been considered by the government and is now reflected in the key messages on their web pages. These include:
• The cost of childcare
• Early education
• Flexibility and accessibility
• Continuous care
• Support for providers
• Other considerations
