Y Gamfa Wen wins its second Eco-Schools Flag

15.12.2014

Staff and children at Y Gamfa Wen, the on-site nursery at UWTSD Carmarthen, were celebrating last month after being awarded their second coveted Eco-Schools Flag in three years.

Members of staff have been working tirelessly to ensure that the nursery’s daily routine is one that benefits the environment and teaches them about sustainability in an exciting and engaging way. 

By doing this, Y Gamfa Wen’s commitment to the environment has been recognised by Keep Wales Tidy’s Eco-Schools programme – an initiative that inspires children to be leaders of change in their communities and widens learning beyond the classroom to develop responsible attitudes and commitment, both at home and in the wider community. 

“Being awarded our second Green Flag award is something that Y Gamfa Wen and UWTSD are very proud of. It’s been a fantastic initiative for all involved and it’s great to see the staff and children making positive changes to the way they work and play,” says Delyth Davies, Manager of Y Gamfa Wen.

“This is an initiative that school-aged children are usually involved in so we’re even prouder of our achievement as our children are of nursery age.  It’s fantastic to see the children being aware of sustainability at such a young age.

Y Gamfa Wen is a purpose built day nursery located within UWTSD and is registered with the Care and Social Services Inspectorate for Wales (CSSIW). The nursery provides a safe and welcoming environment where children receive the best care and attention. There’s ample play space, indoors and out, high quality equipment, and well qualified staff - all of which combine to provide an enriching experience for your child.
