My name is Margaret Rose and I am a CIW Registered Childminder based in Penrhyncoch, near Aberystwyth in beautiful West Wales. I have 20 years of experience as a Registered Childminder. I provide home from home childcare in a quality setting which allows your child to play and develop in a safe and friendly environment while also having lots of fun and making new friends.
I cater for children aged between 0 and 12 years old. I also provide after school and holiday care for older children and at the moment collect from Rhydypennau school.
The childminding is based in my home where I have a large playroom and back garden in which the children can play, learn, develop, and explore. I also take children on trips outside the home. This include trips to local toddler groups, the library, local playgrounds, and the surrounding countryside to mention just a few.
The language of our home is English; however, I am able to use some Welsh with the children.
I have two assistants, my daughter, Bethan, who works with me full time and my husband, Stephen, who works with us on a part time basis. The other people in my home are my other children, Thomas, Christopher and Eleanor.
