Childcare and Early Years Education providers are invited to tender for the delivery of three and four year old early learning services in Powys.

Following the change to the age of admission to schools, which will take effect from September, there is an increased need to provide three and four year old children access to free, high quality Foundation Phase Education provision in Powys.

From September 2017 there will be additional hours of pre-school provision available to three and four year olds, increasing from the current 10 hours to 12.5 hours per week. There will be a maximum of three hours per day and a minimum of two, for a total of 12.5 hours per week during term time of funded pre-school provision available.

Both current and potential new providers are encouraged to tender.

The tender is now live on: and will stop accepting applications as of at 12 noon on January 31. The tender Reference number is itt_57538.

The successful providers will be notified in the spring and will be expected to start delivery of the contracts in September 2017.

Pre-school three year old provision, currently run under the control of a Schools Governing body will be retained and these schools will not need to tender at this stage. However, any schools wishing to establish a new setting will need to go through the same tender process as other providers.

Where there is available space for Early Years provision to be delivered in Primary schools new and existing providers can tender to deliver from this school setting. Further details on potential available spaces are in the tender documents.
