Childcare Service

Children aged 2-3 years, living in Flying Start areas are entitled to funded childcare for 12.5 hours per week, (two and a half hours per day), Monday to Friday for 42 weeks of the year.

Childcare is provided from a range of mostly centre-based childcare facilities, including private day nurseries, Family Centres, Playgroups and Cylchoedd Meithrin.

I just wanted to send you a note of thanks for all your work on FIS Carmarthenshire Website. I'm working on pulling together some information for a local initiative to educate children and teens on the consequences of drugs and alcohol. I'm working on preparing a pamphlet, and I've learned a lot from your page. I noticed that you had some really great resources. Well done!
