What we do

I am a registered childminder with Care Inspectorate Wales (CIW). I am a fluent and first language welsh speaker and I can communicate in either Welsh and/or English.

My aim is to provide childcare in a home from home setting which places emphasis on children's play and development by various activities such as visiting the beach, use of local amenities e.g. wildlife centres. The setting thrives on a child-led atmosphere and ethos allowing children to develop at their own pace following their own interests and reaching their full potential. Additionally, some activities are planned to further develop the children and prepare them for transitions/experiences they may encounter in life e.g. problem solving.

To provide children with various opportunities we do attend local playgroups such as Cymraeg i Blant, Tamborin Tots etc. Parents will be informed if there is an additional charge.
