About Caerphilly Flying Start

Flying Start is a Welsh Government funded Programme available in targeted areas to support families and gives 0-3 year olds a Flying Start in life.

They provide intensive support services for children aged 0-3 years old and your family. The focus of the programme is promoting language, cognitive, social and emotional skills, physical development and the early identification of high needs.

They do this through the delivery of intensive health support and guidance, parenting groups and family support, early language development support and funded part-time childcare.
