Consultation: Nannies as childcare providers


The Welsh Government is seeking views on a proposed scheme that will create a new way of approving nannies as childcare providers.

The Approval of home Childcare Providers (Wales) Scheme 2021 will also allow parents to claim relevant UK government benefits and tax relief while employing a nanny approved under the scheme. The new scheme is intended to replace the Childcare at Home Voluntary Approval Scheme commonly referred to as the ‘Nanny Scheme’.

The Welsh Government welcomes views from people in Wales who have an interest or who may be affected by the change.

Closing date for responding: 4 December 2020
