Butterfly room This room allows toddlers to explore and mix together learning through play. There is a slightly more structured routine to their day. The room is divided into different areas including messy play, mark making, role play and construction. There is also a cosy corner for relaxing. Children can explore and learn at their own pace whilst becoming more independent and self-confident. The busy hands room includes large outdoor windows which bring in plenty of natural light and views of outdoor nature, access to outdoor play area, and large wall displays which follow an 8-week theme.

Rooms

Caterpillar Room The caterpillar room has a routine which revolves around each child’s individual needs. Each child is appointed a ‘key worker’ who is a member of staff responsible for the child’s day to day care, and also ensures that both child and parent are happy and content within the setting. Each child’s individuality is catered for through fun filled and stimulating activities. The little feet room has a wide range of toys and materials suitable for children under 2. A wide open planned room with comfortable spaces ensures plenty of opportunities for quiet time, crawling, and learning to walk.  A written record is shared with parents about each child’s daily routine. The room includes a large wall mirror, soft toys, large windows with plenty of natural light and wonderful views of outdoor nature. Resources include: Toys and books, Mark making area, Walkabout toys, Soft play, rocking chair for bottle feeding and sensory tent.
Sunflower room The older children experience a relaxed playroom with activities based on themes related to the Foundation Phase which helps to develop pre- educational skills. The children are given independence from an early age within the room.   There is time for children to be calm and relaxed as well as being included in group activities. Social skills are developed through sharing, helping others, and turn taking. A routine is followed which encourages independence and a sense of security in children. Our main focus is to ensure that children are happy and thriving within the crèche environment, therefore we work closely with parents to ensure each child is content and reaching their individual potential before they begin full time education. Parents are welcome to make an appointment to discuss their child’s progress at any time and at any age.
Outdoor Area Outdoor play plays an important part in each child’s routine. Outdoor play enhances many aspects of development including physical and sensory development. Over the years we have become more focused on outdoor play and making use of the natural resources available. We have two outdoor play areas which includes a large slide and climbing frame, and a more natural area which is ideal for bringing children closer to nature. We continue to develop our outdoor area including Forest school sessions and sensory play experiences. We also try our best to take the children for walks outside of the setting. We have some wonderful walkways and parks in the surrounding area and we try and visit them as often as we can especially during warmer months.
Berwyn Before and After School Club The Berwyn club is for children aged 4-12 years. The club is currently situated at Bala Sports Pavilion. It is an ideal location as it has all the amenities needed such as large indoor and outdoor play area, and a large playground nearby. Fun activities are provided as well as school pick up from Bala area, and healthy snack for no extra cost. Children have the opportunity to socialise and make friends with children from schools within the local area. A holiday club is also run through the school holidays between 7.50am and 5.30pm. Activities include sports, day trips, and fun craft.
