At Ysgubor Fach our aim is to offer a caring, homely, stimulating, warm and educational atmosphere for the children in our care. By providing the best possible care for the children, we want to create a "home from home" feeling.

Pontcowin Farm is in Banc y Felin and has been with the Thomas family for 13 generations. As a family we decided to convert the outbuildings into a creche. Ysgubor Fach is a brand new nursery with all the correct facilities to provide the best care for your children.

Our staff are all highly qualified. One member is working towards her NVQ5. All staff have current first aid certificates and regulary attend courses to keep their skills up to date.

We provide healthy, nutritional home-made meals daily. We also provide toast and milk in the mornings and a snack at 3.30pm which is included in the fee.

At Ysgubor fach we will offer a range of activities to suit all ages.

The realisation of Meithrinfa Ysgubor Fach Creche was Eleri's long-term dream.

Set in the grounds of the former Pontcowin Farm, the buildings have been specially developed for pre-school children. The layout has been carefully thought through with facilities for everything for babies a few weeks old to children ready for school. Its situation in the countryside near Bancyfelin means that children can play in the country air their grandparents might have enjoyed in full safety and well away from traffic. Even parking is easy as it has its own car park for dropping off and collecting children.

The nursery caters for children from a few weeks old to just before school age. Because of Eleri's long experience, they also have facilities to cope with children with disabilities.

Ysgubor Fach is a family run nursery that can react quickly to your local needs and respons personally to the families it serves.

Setting a benchmark for other nurseries

We genuinely want our nursery to be the best and we want nursery experiences to be memorable and fun. We realise that it is vital that we earn the trust and confidence of you, the parent and that you are happy with what we do and how we do it. Together we can produce happy and confident children who enjoy living in a culture that nurtures and values the importance of a happy childhood and gives children the opportunity to maximise their full potential and become well-rounded citizens of the world.
