It’s that time of year when the rainy and cold weather has set us thinking about jobs to do inside. A huge thank you to Emma and Stacey for their hard work in sprucing up our dark room and the Holiday Club after a busy Summer. Both rooms look amazing.
We are taking bookings for October Half Term and if you are thinking of joining us please let us know asap as spaces are limited due to Emma going off for an operation.
Good luck to Sasha, Shelley and Bethan who are all starting their level 5 CCLD qualification this month and to Stacey who is starting her level 5 Management top up. Well done ladies, you are a top team.
It has been a busy summer at Ser Bach, we hope you have all had a good one and enjoyed the sunny days. We hope all of our children who started school last week are enjoying themselves and look forward to hearing about their adventures.
The staff have been busy settling our new children and just two weeks in everyone seems to be having a good time.
Over the summer we said a fond farewell to Norah, Teri and Claire. Teri has already been in to see us, she is enjoying her new role working in a building company and we look forward to hearing from Norah and Claire soon. We wish them all the best.
Sasha has taken over Claire’s position as Room Leader and Di has joined us in Sasha’s old role. Di has had lots of experience working in different nurseries and they are already making a really good team.
It is our pleasure to welcome Lauren who joined us over the summer after finishing her level 3 CCLD in college and has worked in all three rooms. We feel as though she has worked with us for much longer than just a few weeks.
Ceri has been appointed as our new cook. She has lots of ideas and will hopefully be starting work at the end of the month. In the meantime Kirsty and Carla have very kindly taken over cooking duties and are doing an amazing job.
The summer holidays are flying by and it has been fantastic to enjoy the sunshine.Our plans are in place for a busy September and by today we only have a limited number of spaces left, especially for children under 2 years. If you have enquired recently but have not yet confirmed a place please contact us asap to avoid disappointment. We really don’t want to let anybody down. Thank you.
We are all getting very excited about officially opening the doors of our holiday club this summer. Over the past year some of the children who left us to start on their adventure at school have been back to play with us and it is a joy to have their company in the holidays. Watching their excitement as they catch up is both an honor and a privilege.
Work will begin on creating a purpose built room for the ‘big’ children to have some space away from the younger children although popping in to see your little brother or sister is always encouraged. Ffrindiau Sêr Bach will be offering lots of fun activities to help the children to use the skills that they have learnt over the past year at school which will be introduced through a series of mini themes.
There will be plenty of chances to practice their sporting skills and to show their creative side with artist days and musical activities being planned to keep their imaginations busy.
There will be lots of opportunities for trips to the out and about with camping experiences and picnics being planned.
A day at Ffrindiau Sêr Bach will keep your child busy and stimulated leaving you free to go to work reassured that they will be looked after by qualified and experienced staff.

Are you looking for a nursery that offers more than quality childcare?
At Ser Bach we know that a nursery is only as good as it’s staff. This is why we invest so much into ensuring that we have the best team of highly qualified, experienced, bilingual staff who offer child centered care in a comfortable, homely environment and still ensure each child’s developmental needs are catered for. Each child has their personal learning journey and this is recorded in books for you to keep and treasure, our children have so much fun they don’t even realise they are learning.

A HUGE thank you to my amazing staff for all their hard work. We are very pleased with our report and the positive comments that the inspector made about Sêr Bach. Here are a few of the comments made and we will send a copy to each of our parents once the official version comes out after the 5th of May.
“Children receive effective support from a service which can fully meet their needs. Children and their parents can be confident that staff plan for appropriate activities as well as looking at ways in which they can improve their care of the children.”
“Children have control over how their time is spent and they enjoy participating in the activities made available to them as well as being able to spend time outdoors. Children’s emotional needs are catered for and children are able to develop relationships with their peers.”
“Children are listened to and treated with dignity and respect.”
Parents can be confident that a variety of activities are planned which suit the children’s ages and stages of development.”
“We observed staff members encouraging children to explore and investigate as well as knowing when to step back and allow the children to play on their own We saw that there were plenty for the children to do which kept them busy and stimulated.”
“Good health and hygiene is promoted.”
“Children develop positive relationships with one another. We observed children who were at ease in their surroundings as well as hearing lots of chatter and discussion between both staff and children. We observed children who were learning positive skills that enhance their social well-being.”
Today’s music workshops were a HUGE success. Thank you to the marvelous Mr T for his fantastic work and to the wonderful staff and children. We all had an amazing time, it was truly magical. We can’t wait for the next workshop.
This week is turning into one of the best so far……. the children have enjoyed a huge variety of activities to celebrate Healthy body, happy me week including our indoor paddling pool. A huge thank you to all the staff for their fantastic work, we are looking forward to lots more fun for the rest of the week.
We are looking for a member of staff who has a Level 2 qualification in childcare and is looking to train to do their level 3 at Sêr Bach. The ability to speak both Welsh and English is essential.
