Hi my name is Kelly Matthews, I am a registered childminder in Margam, Port Talbot, I have 3 children of my own, aged 18 yrs, 16 yrs and 7 yrs. I provide a warm friendly home from home setting and encourage learning through play. I regularly take the children out to parks, the beach, playgroups etc I offer a variety of play and learning opportunities such as cooking, art & crafts, music and dance and much more.

During school holidays we go on day trips and visit lots of local attractions, I like to make the most of it when time allows and take advantage of not being restricted by school runs.
