Childcare Statutory Guidance
The Childcare Act reinforces the framework within which local authorities already work – in partnership with the private, voluntary, independent, community and maintained sector – to shape and secure children’s services, and focuses in particular on the provision of:
- sufficient, sustainable and flexible childcare that is responsive to parents’ needs
- information, advice and assistance to parents, prospective parents and those with parental responsibility or care of a child, relating to childcare.
The Childcare Act 2006 (Local Authority Assessment) (Wales) Regulations 2013 have been revoked and replaced with the Childcare Act 2006 (Local Authority Assessment) (Wales) Regulations 2016.
