Please note: Staff can only supervise children whilst they are on site and participating in the scheme’s activities. They are NOT providing childcare and cannot confine children to the building / its grounds or prevent them from coming or going as they please.
Holiday Playschemes operate during the main school holidays and children are left in the care of staff working at the centre. Children at a holiday playscheme are cared for throughout the day until they are collected by the parent/carer.
Registration with the Care and Social Services Inspectorate Wales (CSSIW) is required when the holiday playscheme offers a service to children under the age of eight for more than two hours a day. If a Holiday Playscheme is CSSIW registered, parents can claim childcare costs through Tax Credits, depending on their circumstances.
