The Approval of Home Childcare Providers (Wales) Scheme 2021 - Family support services

What we do

The Welsh Government established the ‘Childcare at Home Voluntary Approval Scheme’, sometimes referred to as the “Nanny Scheme” in 2007 as a voluntary scheme, administered by us on the Welsh Government’s behalf. Amongst other things, inclusion within the scheme enabled parents using an approved nanny, to receive financial assistance through a range of UK Government tax and benefits concessions such as Tax Credits, Universal Credit and Tax-Free Childcare, where they are eligible.

From 1 April 2021 we will be processing applications for approval and renewal of approval under new legislation, The Approval of Home Childcare Providers (Wales) Scheme 2021.
