Parents across the whole of Cardiff are getting 30 hours of free childcare. A scheme to give parents free childcare is being extended across the whole of Cardiff. The Welsh Government scheme gives eligible working parents of three and four years old children in the city 30 hours of free early years education and childcare for up to 48 weeks of the year. Eligible parents will be able to access the offer from the beginning of the term following their child's third birthday until the September following their fourth birthday, when they begin full-time education. It could save families £4,286 a year.

What is a Foundation Phase Alliance School? A Foundation Phase Alliance School is an integrated children’s centre, nursery, infant or primary school that has been identified and commissioned by the Central South Consortium to champion the development of effective practice across this important phase of learning throughout the Central South Wales region. Foundation Phase Alliance Schools have a strong track record of securing the highest possible standards for all groups of young learners and have demonstrated the capacity to continuously improve all aspects of leadership, learning and teaching within their own organisation. These schools also demonstrate the capacity to encourage, inspire, develop and support other schools and seek to empower and enable continuous improvement beyond their own settings. The Foundation Phase Alliance offers an exciting new step change in the way that continuous, were can i buy cialis sustainable professional development in the Foundation Phase is offered across the Central South Wales region. As a Foundation Phase Alliance School we offer a range of professional learning and development initiatives throughout the academic year where practitioners have the opportunity to combine observations of real time, everyday practice in our busy setting with high quality professional dialogue, collaborative inquiry, challenge and support. All Foundation Phase Alliance Schools are communities where collaborative inquiry is used to foster improvements in practice. We do not work in isolation and seek to lead by example through a model of joint practice development within the Foundation Phase Alliance and beyond it. Head teachers, senior leaders and other members of our teams also engage in direct, intensive and supportive partnerships with schools in difficult or challenging circumstances.
