In February, 2002, Ceredigion County Council announced their intention to build a special Unit at Aberporth School. Canolfan y Don was opened in April, 2004, for children up to age 11 years who experience severe, profound and complex learning needs.
We aim to provide an educational environment which is child centred, flexible and responsive to the the needs of each pupil.Each child is exceptional and we aim to give them every opportunity to succeed and progress within this educational setting.
The Centre is well equipped with adequate classroom space for the pupils.
Visitors to Canolfan y Don say that it has a friendly atmosphere. This is good for our children as they give of their best when they feel calm and at ease.
