Day Care Centre
Our Day Care Centre welcomes the children of both students and staff, aged ten weeks to five years.
We provide a safe, nurturing, inclusive and stable environment that is innovative, stimulating and challenging – one where all children can thrive, learn and make new friends.
A varied, rich experience
We embrace the concept that children learn through play and need a varied, rich learning experience. Every day they participate in reading, stories, singing, role play and games to encourage literacy and numeracy. They'll take part in arts and crafts, and produce work to take home to you.
Outdoor play and physical activity are also a major part of the day. We have large garden areas available for every age group, with space to plant vegetables and herbs, which are used in our own kitchen.
The Centre is divided into sections appropriate to the ages and development of the children. Each child is given a 'key worker', a member of staff who will be responsible for their individual needs.
Healthy food, prepared on site
You won't need to bring any food along, as everything is provided: a nutritious, well-balanced meal cooked on the premises, along with healthy mid-morning and afternoon snacks. And we try to accommodate individual dietary requirements wherever we can.
At the moment, snacks are included in the fee, whereas there is an additional charge for lunches.
We have a four-week rolling menu, changed several times a year, which provides your child with plenty of variety and the opportunity to try new foods.
We've been awarded the Cardiff and Vale Gold Plus Standard Healthy Snack Award, which demonstrates a commitment to children’s health.
