Tedi Bach is registered by CIW and provides Flying Start nursery provision within the grounds of Ysgol Pen Rhos, situated on Copperworks Road Llanelli. The nursery welcomes all children, boys and girls, ages 2-3 years living within the Flying Start areas of Copperworks, Lakefield and Seaside. We are also able to provide support for children with additional needs. Children at Tedi Bach receive 12.5 hours of free childcare over 5 days a week Monday – Friday for 39 weeks of the year term time, which is fully funded by the Welsh Assembly Government.
Tedi Bach caters for up to 20 children at any one time. The morning session runs from 9:00 – 11:30am and is delivered through the medium of Welsh and the afternoon session runs from 12:30-3:00pm and is delivered bilingually (English and Welsh). The focus of the service is on the child and to ensure that all children develop their language, social skills, and that they are emotionally and physically ready to start school.
Staff within the nursery have appropriate childcare qualifications in accordance with the Care Council Wales framework and are therefore well-trained to ensure the safety and well-being of the children at all times. Staff also hold valid DBS, food hygiene, fire safety, child protection and paediatric first aid certificates. The nursery leader is qualified at Level 5 and possesses relevant managerial experience in caring for children aged 2-3 years. The childcare assistants at the setting are qualified to minimum Level 3 in childcare as well as possessing relevant childcare experience.
Tedi Bach has an open plan play room with play areas such as home corner, small world, construction, reading corner, mark making, and role play allowing children to move freely between the areas and make choices in their play. The outdoor area offers children a soft crumb flooring with bikes and scooters, a story telling area and tepee to expand their imagination, a giant sand pit, water board and a mud kitchen to develop their senses. Tedi Bach has a modern, child friendly toileting area with nappy changing facilities. Healthy snacks are provided during the morning and afternoon session and the children are encouraged to help prepare their snacks to develop their independence skills. Water and/or milk are available throughout the session.
