Healthy Pre School Scheme

The Healthy Pre School Scheme (part of the Welsh Government’s Healthy Schools Scheme initiative) aims to get nurseries, childminders, and family centres to promote and protect all aspects of health. 

The Healthy Pre School Scheme focuses on the following;

  • Nutrition & oral health
  • Physical activity & active play
  • Safety
  • Hygiene
  • Mental and emotional health, wellbeing and relationships
  • Environment
  • Workplace health

Who can join the scheme?

All settings that provide childcare for pre school age children can be involved in the scheme. 

How do I get involved?

If you haven't already been invited, please contact our Healthy Pre School Officer to register your details and let us know you'd like to be involved.

How does the Healthy Pre School Scheme work?

For each health theme, the setting must show that it is promoting health through its policies, planning and ethos as well as the well-being of its community.

At the end of each phase the setting is assessed and once they meet the required standards are awarded a certificate from Public Health Wales.

Support with the scheme

Each setting will be supported by the Healthy Pre School officer to complete the criteria and provide evidence. Training will be available and the resources below can also help.
