A NURSERY open morning for prospective parents and children at a Flintshire primary school has been hailed a great success.

The event was held at Ysgol Maes Y Felin, in Holywell, and was well attended - giving parents an opportunity to find out more about what the school has to offer, including its childcare clubs and services.

Tamsin Nellist, head of foundation phase, helped organise the open morning.

She said: “We were delighted with the attendance and it was a pleasure to meet new and prospective parents in an informal way.

“We were able to talk to families about our positive ethos of putting children at the heart of learning, highlighting our progressive approach to the new curriculum and sharing the excellent practise within our school. It was lovely that parents could come and ask questions while seeing the children learning through play in our indoor and outdoor provision.”

In addition to the nursery, the school operates a wraparound care service as well as holiday and after school clubs.

The term-time wrap around service is available for children who attend nursery and early entitlement at the school and the after-school club is for children from the age of three to twelve, including year 7 students at Ysgol Treffynnon.

The holiday club is open to all children, not just pupils who attend the school.

A new childcare facility located within the school grounds is currently being planned which will accommodate up to thirty children.

Mrs Nellist added: ”We would like to extend an invitation to any parents who are considering Ysgol Maes y Felin for their child’s education to attend stay and play sessions on 5th and 12th December. Parents will be able to meet the staff and experience engaging and exciting activities alongside your child.”
