Lighthouse Nursery is run from a designated nursery room with its own toilet facility within the Thornhill Church Centre. The nursery has a garden attached which we use whenever possible to play and learn outdoors. We also have use of the main hall on rainy days and an upstairs room for small group activities and organised play.
Nursery sessions run Monday to Friday from 9:00 to 12:00 and from 13:00 to 16:00. We are open for forty-four weeks per year. We close for half terms, a week at Easter and Christmas, three weeks in the summer, and bank holidays.
Provision can be made for your child to start at 8:30 instead of 9:00 at a small extra charge.
We take eighteen children per session aged from two and a half to five years old. We have five experienced members of staff with a variety of professional qualifications, including teaching qualifications and QCF Level 3 in Childcare, Learning and Development. The staff/child ratio is never less than 1:6, and we have regular inspections by the Care Inspectorate for Wales (CIW).
