All change in Wales for childcare brief
NDNA Cymru will be working closely with two new ministers following a cabinet reshuffle.
In December, we said goodbye and thank you to Huw Irranca-Davies AM, Minister for Children, Older People and Social Care, who was so proactive in listening to the sector and implementing policy change to benefit children, families and nurseries.
Following the resignation of the First Minister Carwyn Jones, Mark Drakeford AM became the new First Minister for Wales. In his new cabinet, Vaughan Gething AM is the Minister for Health and Social Services supported by Julie Morgan AM Deputy Minister for Health and Social Services. Early years and childcare and the Flying Start initiative for children aged 0-3 are now part of their ministerial responsibilities.
We look forward to working with them over the coming months on a number of exciting projects including NDNA’s Childcare Works phase 2 project and the pilot to align the funding of Foundation Phase with the Childcare Offer in Flintshire.
