Carmarthen Journal - - News -

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-
