What we do

I provide term and non-term childcare for children between the ages of 0-12 years. I aim to provide a safe, secure, happy and nurturing environment in which the children with learn, grow and develop through a range of play opportunities.

I offer drop offs and school pick ups and wrap around care.

I have a range of toys and activities for children and a secure outdoor space for them to play in. I am in walking distance of a local park and a short drive away from another local park. I attend toddler and playgroups with children and also organise fun days out!

I provide a range of meals and snacks for children at an additional cost and can also keep food from your home refrigerated. I have bottles for babies that are sterilized before use, however I do not provide formula.

I am Care Inspectorate Wales registered and have the relevant insurances for myself and driving. I am trained in Safeguarding and Paediatric First Aid.
