New childcare hubs open in Caerphilly county borough
Two new childcare hubs have opened in the Caerphilly county borough this week to provide support to pupils with additional learning needs.

The hubs at Greenhill Primary School in Gelligaer and Glan y Nant in Pengam will provide sessions, whilst schools are closed during the Coronavirus crisis, for those identified as requiring support.

These sites join nine existing hubs across the county borough currently providing childcare for key workers – Bedwas High, Blackwood Primary, Idris Davies 3-18, Lewis School, Risca Community Comprehensive, Trinity Fields, St James’ Primary School, Rhiw Syr Dafydd and at Ysgol Gyfun Cwm Rhymni (Gellihaf site).

Cllr Barbara Jones, Cabinet Member for Education and Achievement at Caerphilly County Borough Council, said “The hubs have helped support the delivery of essential services during this period of national emergency by providing childcare to enable those in critical roles to continue working. 

We also recognise that this period of extended school closures will be particularly difficult for some of our more vulnerable children; these additional hubs aim to provide additional support to those pupils during the current crisis.”
