Local MS Hannah Blythyn, has praised the work of “All About Kids” a new childcare provider based at the Rural North Flintshire Family Centre, in Gronant, following a visit there earlier this month.
The childcare project includes a playgroup, after-school club and even a holiday club to support children and families in the local area, and works closely with both Ysgol Gronant and Ysgol Trelogan as part of the Point of Ayr Federation. This is reflective of their commitment to supporting children to develop educationally and socially whilst at the Centre.
Ms Blythyn recently visited All About Kids to hear more about how the Welsh Government’s Childcare Offer is supporting families in the area, and to see first-hand the difference the project is making to children and families, following it’s opening in early May.
Following the visit, the Delyn MS said:
“It was great to chat to the team at All About Kids and be shown around the Centre, including the outdoor activity area which is used to encourage the children to explore nature in a safe way.
Supporting and enabling our children to have the best possible opportunities and outcomes is important to all of us, and it was great to see how the Childcare Offer is allowing more working parents to access good quality childcare.”
The Welsh Government introduced the Childcare Offer in 201 to support working parents of 3-4 year olds, by helping with childcare costs. The most recent statistics, released in March, showed that over 1000 children in Flintshire had benefitted from the Childcare Offer between September 2019 and March 2020.
Speaking on behalf of All About Kids, Jo Gillmore said:
“We were really pleased to have Hannah here so we could showcase everything we have on offer here to support children with their development.
Here at All About Kids we have a nurturing, fully qualified staff team, who are committed to giving children the best possible opportunities whilst they are with us. Its also great to be working with the Point of Ayr Federation, to take a holistic approach to child development.”
