Extension at Ysgol Penmorfa

Building work is taking place at Ysgol Penmorfa in Prestatyn to extend the onsite childcare facility. The project has been funded by the Welsh Government’s Flying Start Capital Grant.

Work on the extension began in September 2022 and the facility will be completed in the spring of 2023. The extension will increase the capacity of childcare provision allowing more local families to access the Flying Start funded childcare in Prestatyn. This will not only provide more families within the locality access to high quality affordable childcare but also enable parents to seek employment and support the well-being of children, reducing the risk of poverty in families.

Councillor Gill German, Deputy Leader and Lead Member for Education, Children and Families visited the Ysgol Penmorfa site recently to look at the progress being made so far.

Councillor German said: “Our Welsh Government funded Flying Start provision in Denbighshire is so important to support our families and to give our children the start in life they deserve.

"This extension at Ysgol Penmorfa will increase capacity for Flying Start childcare places within the area to extend our current offer.

"This is fantastic news for the community and will provide an opportunity for more children to attend quality early years education, thereby better preparing them for their future primary education and beyond.

"The build is progressing really well and will include high quality facilities for the benefit of the children who will attend. I am delighted to see this happen and am looking forward to seeing how the work progresses.”
