A BANGOR nursery has relocated to new premises in the city.

Tir na n’Og, Bangor University’s child care and child research centre, has re-opened at the Normal campus after its move from the St Mary’s site.

Professor Pauline Horne, of the University’s School of Psychology and director of Tir Na n’Og, said: “Our nursery staff are absolutely delighted to be working in their new purpose built nursery, set in such beautiful surroundings.

“The children also are very excited by their new day care environment, which provides endless opportunities for exploration, fun, and a cosy little sleep when the need arises.”

Tir na n’Og was established in 1990. Bangor University decided to move to nursery to make way for its new students halls at St Mary’s.

The nursery provides childcare for university staff, students and parents in the local community, in their new, state of the art day care nursery.

Tir na n’Og also includes a child research facility, which ensures that the latest findings in child learning and development are incorporated into the nursery’s day care.

There will be an open for parents at the nursery from 10am -12pmon on Saturday, June 28.

Professor Horne said: “We are very grateful to the university for their decision to invest so generously in this excellent childcare provision for parents in the local community.

"Working parents’ need to feel confident that while they pursue their careers and earn a living their children are really well cared for.”
