20 jobs for nursery in former school
A FORMER primary school in Carmarthen has been transformed into a nursery, creating 20 jobs.
Welsh-speaking Cywion Bach, has moved into the former Idole village school which has undergone significant renovation work following support from Carmarthenshire County Council’s Rural Enterprise Fund.
A sensory room and new outdoor play area form part of the spacious refurbished building, which accommodates children aged three months to 11 years. An after school and holiday club is also available for older children up to 11 years.
Outdoor spaces including an onsite forest have been developed for children to explore and experience the natural world through ties.
Carmarthenshire Council leader, councillor Emlyn Dole, said: “The council is delighted to have provided funding support to Cywion Bach nursery to develop a vibrant new business. I was pleased we are able to support this venture which is also providing first class childcare facilities in the Carmarthen area.”
Nursery owner Heather Thomas said: “We are extremely grateful to Carmarthenshire County Council for the financial help we have received. The ethos of this exciting venture is to provide quality childcare through the medium of Welsh with the focus centred on the natural environment.” hands-on activi-
