Some providers have already benefited from the increase in rates relief made available to them earlier this year however, this new announcement will be of immense benefit to those childcare providers who were still outside the scope of relief. 100% Business rates relief will promote the sustainability of childcare businesses and allow for the successful delivery of the Childcare Offer in Wales.
Pauline Wilson, proprietor of Princess Road Pre-school in Conwy told us: ‘This is wonderful news, very good news indeed. This will be the difference between sustainability and future difficulties. This will help us deliver the Childcare Offer in the way that it is intended.’
