Flying Start offers free childcare for children aged 2 – 3 years in quality indoor and outdoor environments.    Qualified staff will help children settle, make new friends and experience activities which build on the knowledge and skills gained at home.  Attendance at childcare will prepare children for school and parents / carers will be able to get involved in their children’s learning.

Parents / Carers choosing Welsh language provision for their child can speak to the Flying Start team about Welsh medium pre-school provision.  All Flying Start childcare provision is inclusive and able to cater for children with additional needs.
