Your children come first at Ysgubor Fach. Staff are chosen for their proven experience, qualifications, enthusiasm, dedication, and a genuine love for the children. The staff at Ysgubor Fach take great pride in offering the best service that they can to the children. Whether it is planning a challenging activity for the children, to giving a tired child a story and cuddle. As we are a small nursery the staff know all the children well. This allows them to understand the needs of your child. The staff will provide you with a daily report and will completely developmental reports for your child.

All nursery staff are qualified to, or working towards NVQ 3 in Childcare and education, or have a NNEB certificate. All staff are fully DBS checked. We update training regularly, including First Aid, Baby Safe, child protection, learning through play, behaviour management and food hygiene. All our staff are trained in paediatric first aid and food hygiene and we cater for children with special needs.

Our aim at Ysgubor Fach is to offer a caring, homely, 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. Our spacious bright Nursery is a happy, stimulating environment, where caring, dedicated staff encourage the children to develop. Our philosophy is a holistic, child-centred approach where children are encouraged to develop in a nurturing environment.


Pontcowin Farm is in BancyFelin 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. 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 breakfast in the morning and a snack at 3.30pm which is included in the fee.

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 means that children can play in the country air their grandparents might have enjoyed, in full safety. Even parking is easy as it has its own car park for dropping off and collecting children.

The nursery caters for children from 6 weeks old to 12 years old. 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

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.
