Half term holiday childcare for parents working to support the COVID-19 response
Wiltshire Council has been working with local childminders to provide a directory of half term paid-for childcare for those working as critical workers during the holiday.
Details of the provision has been shared with health partners initially, so Wiltshire residents working directly to support the COVID-19 response can access childcare provision during half term.
Now these details will also be available to any parents looking for paid-for childcare during the February half term, who are having difficulties. Parents are asked to email for details of providers with vacancies in their area.
The first option for any parent needing childcare during the February half term school holidays is to consider forming a childcare bubble locally.
The government has said that people who need childcare during the school holidays for a child under 14 can form a childcare bubble with one other household - ideally who live locally.
