Children's safety is of paramount importance. At Ysgubor Fach, we believe that our location, our policies and the security features we have included in the building make us a place where you can leave your child in full confidence they will be cared for. To see a full copy of our saety policy and practice, please use this button.

The highlights of our safety policy include:

  • We subscribe to a safe children policy in line with the all Wales child procedures of 2008 and the local safeguarding advice board. A copy of this policy is given to every child's parent on joining and can be seen at any time on demand.
  • The nursery itself is situated well away from the main road, which means that parents can safely drop off and collect their children. The car park is at the side of the main building to ensure there is no risk when coming in and out.
  • Children are supervised at all times with a minimum of two staff members whenever there is a child on the premises.
  • The building itself is secured with a push-button system, ensuring your child is safe at all times.
  • We keep a register of staff and children which can be checked at any time.
  • We have a full fire detection system,
  • We have policies and procedures on toy safety, dangerous materials, medicines and cleaning materials, hot drinks and non-smoking.


We will monitor care and produce a report annually. In this we will look at all areas of our services in detail to see where can make improvements. We will regularly ask our parents to fill in feedback forms Your input and ideas are vital to help us to continually improve our service. A copy of this report will be available to you and a copy will be sent to our inspectors at CSSIW. Our annual report will be available for you to view.

We have a full range of activities planned for each day. These are followed in a relaxed manner due to the tender age of the children in our care. The idea behind this is to ensure that we cover the six areas of learning properly and that the activity programme continues to be varied and interesting for the children. However, no child will be pushed into doing anything they do not wish to do. The aim of the nursery at all times is to provide a caring and homely atmosphere for the children in our care: we are not a school. The happiness of our children is our number one aim and if we can stimulate them educationally, that is an added bonus.
