Just 13 emergency childcare hubs will be operating across the county from this Friday, including one each in Welshpool, Llanfyllin and Llanfair Caereinion.

Powys County Council has said that the current school sites will remain open until Thursday, but only for children of critical workers and the most vulnerable children.

The hubs, which will provide childcare to support critical emergency workers, NHS staff and social care workers as well as the county’s most vulnerable children, will also operate at weekends. The hubs will operate from 8am to 6pm.

To access provision from Friday until April 3, critical workers will need to register their child at their nearest emergency childcare hub by filling in an online form (below) by 9pm on Wednesday. 

As part of the arrangements, meals will be provided to children three times a day and transport will be arranged for children to get to the hubs and back home. 

Cllr Phyl Davies, Cabinet Member for Education and Property, said: “The advice to parents is clear – if your children can stay safely in their home, they should.

“However, critical workers will still need to have safe care arrangements for their children.  These emergency childcare hubs will be providing a vital service to support critical workers and our most vulnerable children.

“I want to thank all professionals at our schools for their commitment during this extremely difficult period.”
