On February 29th 2012, Sami Owen realised her dream of opening a new nursery in Star. Four years, and another leap year later, her business took a major step forward with the move to new premises in Llanfairpwllgwyngyll.
A large crowd cheered as the ribbon on the new Meithrinfa Bach Hapus front door was cut by Ynys Môn AM Rhun ap Iorwerth, helped by Sami’s son Finlay.
Sami Owen said: “I had my Star nursery approved four years ago to the day we opened in Llanfairpwll – the 29th of February – so a very special leap year twice in a row!
“The nursery has enabled me to live my dream of being able to care for and support young children through their early years, creating a home from home environment that they have continually thrived in. I have an amazing team of girls that care for the children like they’re their own, and provide all the love, care and attention that they receive at home.”
Inside, up to 34 children will be cared for in a wonderful jungle-themed environment, lovingly created by Sami and her husband.
Rhun ap Iorwerth AM said: “Sami has done a fantastic job, and the smiles on everyone’s faces – from staff to parents and their children – said it all. Meithrinfa Bach Hapus provides an important service to the area, and I wish them all the very best in their new home.”
