Torfaen Healthy and Sustainable Pre School Scheme

The Healthy and Sustainable Pre-School Scheme is an extension of the Welsh Network of Healthy Schools Scheme. At present, 35 pre-school settings in Torfaen are enrolled on the scheme and include day nurseries, Flying Start, playgroups and childminders.

The scheme promotes positive health behaviours from an early age, including good oral health and the importance of healthy eating and physical activity to support reducing obesity in the Early Years.

The scheme is accredited, and as such, each setting collates evidence to support each of the following action areas:

  • Nutrition and Oral Health
  • Physical Activity/Active Play
  • Mental Emotional Health, Well being and Relationships
  • Environment
  • Hygiene
  • Safety
  • Workplace Health and Well being
