It has been announced that a nursery in Brecon will be shutting this Easter.

Cylch Meithrin Aberhonddu @ Cymryd Rhan Childcare will be closing at the end of this term and will not be reopening after the Easter holidays.

In a letter to parents, the impending closure was blamed on staff recruitment issues and “significant changes on the financial horizon".

James Evans, MS for Brecon and Radnorshire said: “It is very disappointing to see the closure of yet another educational establishment in our area.

“Good quality nurseries are so important for our children’s development, and I have big concerns about the reduced options for parents.

“This is also another blow to the Welsh language - we’ve already seen a national decline in Welsh speakers, and the poor provision of Welsh-medium education won’t reverse that trend.”
