About Me

I offer high quality flexible, bilingual childcare following gentle style of care and attachment principles along with an eco friendly approach for children aged up to 12 years. My aim is that all children in my care are given the opportunity to reach their full potential while feeling valued and respected in a warm, child focused environment. I am a breastfeeding friendly setting and promote baby led weaning, child led and open-ended play and healthy eating.
Children have continuous opportunity for outdoor play and free play, including access to age appropriate open ended, small world, role play and construction toys (among others) along with books, craft supplies and games which are offered on a toy rotation basis. All planned activities are presented as an invitation to play.
My service includes home cooked meals and snacks which I encourage the children to help me prepare. At Bryn Bychan I promote the importance of healthy eating and many of the children I care for will have the opportunity to plant, grow, harvest and prepare their own food.
As part of my eco friendly approach to childcare, I offer parents the option of their child using my cloth nappies and wipes while they are in my here.
we have a large outdoor play area which includes a mud kitchen, willow den, slide, climbing frame, veg patch and large lawn area.
School drop offs and collections are available by prior arrangement for Plascrug primary school, Aberystwyth.

My Experience

I have 8 years previous experience of working with children. 3 of these years were spent working at a day nursery, where I gained My NVQ level 3 in Early Years care and Education through Cam wrth Gam, a scheme promoting quality Welsh language childcare. Here I worked as an assistant caring for children from 0-11 years old and also helped to run the Cylch Meithrin. I Also spent 3 years working for Designed to Smile, a Welsh Government initiative to promote Oral Health in children. Much of my time here was spent visiting schools and early years settings, assisting in delivering age appropriate Oral Health Education and undertaking quality assurance assessments for the tooth brushing programme.

With 4 of my own children, I have also spent much of the last 16 years gaining first hand experience of the joys parenthood can bring, along with the struggles faced by parents trying to balance working life with family commitments. I am confident in caring for children from Newborn and where possible will care for children with additional needs.
