Work is progressing well on the extension to the childcare facility at Ysgol Penmorfa in Prestatyn. The project has been funded by the Welsh Government’s Flying Start Capital Grant.

Following the successful appointment of the building contractor TG Williams, work on the extension began in September 2022, with the facility slated for completion 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.

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

On the progress of the extension, Councillor Gill German said:

“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 I am looking forward to seeing how the work progresses.”

“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.”
