Apply for Pre-School (3 and 4 yr olds) Early Years Education

Every child is entitled to receive up to five terms of part time early years education prior to the start of compulsory education. This is offered in a mixture of funded settings, including Playgroups, Cylch meithrin, schools and day nurseries.   

All approved settings have the direct involvement of a qualified teacher. If the setting of your choice cannot offer the maximum entitlement of 10 hours of early years education, you may choose to use the rest of your hours with an alternative provider.   

To find your nearest approved setting please see our Early Years Education page

For information regarding the Childcare Offer for Wales please visit the Family Information Service page here.

Please note that this scheme is administered by Ceredigion County Council for Mid Wales and not administered by Powys County Council, contact details and information on how to apply can be found on the Family Information Service webpage.

If you would like to request a change to your allocated sessions for your child at a Powys pre school setting, please complete the Pre School Admissions Amendment Form.  Once the form has been received we will endeavour to accommodate the new session pattern you require and advise accordingly
