Flying Start

In Wrexham, we’re committed to giving the youngest children the best possible start in life. Which is why you could be eligible for funded childcare for your 2 year old.

Those eligible will receive up to 5 sessions (2 and a half hours a day), each week during school term times (from the term after their second birthday until the term after their third birthday) with a Flying Start childcare-approved provider.

A choice of Welsh medium or English medium childcare provision is available.
