We are open Monday – Friday 8.00am- 5.00pm throughout the year except for Bank holidays and 2 weeks over Christmas.
Breakfast, lunch, a light tea, snacks and drinks are provided, which are freshly prepared, healthy and nutritious. We have varied menus and appreciate the value of seasonal and local produce, and use fresh produce grown at our Rheola Walled Garden.
We offer this service to the local schools and playgroups in the area. All cars and staff are fully insured to provide this service, giving working parents much needed peace of mind.
Our premises consist of a Baby and Toddler room which are inter connecting. We have access for children/parents with accessibility needs and wheelchair facilities. We are fully registered with CSSIW (Care and Social Service Inspectorate Wales) and are regularly inspected by NPT Environmental Health. The room is portioned to help identify our different play areas. We have a secure outdoor play area for lots of fresh air and outdoor activities. This has a safety coated floor to cushion any falls.
