Additional information about our class:

We have Stay and Play days each half term which is a perfect opportunity for you to come and spend time with your child in their environment.   Please can all children bring in a piece of fruit and 10p each day. The money goes towards cooking and gardening.  The Nursery years are your child’s first experiences at our school and we aim to provide a smooth and happy transition into Penygarn with lots of fun, happiness and learning.
