What we do

I am a rural based childminder, living on a working dairy and beef farm, I believe all children should enjoy the great outdoors and understand regarding where food comes from. We also have a pony so the children can help and care for.
I am close to the beach and not far from Cardigan so we can have fun at the Wildlife Park and other fun activities.
I live in a large farm house with the main area for childminding downstairs with a separate large play room with access to a variety of toys.

I have my NVQ level 3 in Childcare, am pediatric first aid trained, have food hygiene level 2 and have also competed a child protection course.

I take 6 weeks holidays during the year and parents are notified well in advance.

Pick ups from Cylch Meithrin Penparc and Aberporth.
