Cylch Meithrin Ysgol y Bedol
We are a small, Welsh-Medium playgroup run by a committee of parents. We take up to 24 children between the ages of 2 and 4 years, and the maximum number of children aged two to three will not exceed 20. We ensure that the number of staff to care for the children is maintained at all times. We are open from 8.30am until 12 noon for children and between 12.15am and 3.15am. Depending on availability we are also able to offer full day. Day care hours are 8.30am-3.15pm. A wide range of play activities are planned and well supervised to promote progress in all areas of a child’s development which will meet the individual child’s needs. The children are offered a variety of learning experiences through the opportunities they are given to play with: sand, water, dough, clay, home-corner equipment, bikes, construction toys and so on. We are also able to go out to the outdoor play area to play on the bikes, play with bean bags, hoops and so on. There are also plenty of opportunities for listening to stories, for imaginative play, and for singing and dancing. Each session will include a break for snack.
