Child’s Play Penclawdd

Meet the team

At Child’s Play at Penclawdd, we are blessed with the most amazing team who generally love and care for all the children who join us. The majority of our staff are qualified up to the mandatory level 3 in Childcare.

We believe that it is essential for staff to continue with their professional development as this ensures your children get the best care possible. Aside from this, our team are happy, enthusiastic, caring, kind, bubbly, a little crazy (in a good way), and absolutely committed to ensuring your child gets the best care possible.



Sam is the founder of Child’s Play and a mum to three children. She has worked extensively with children from newborn up until 12 years of age.

She has an NVQ Level 3 in childcare and development and has been an invaluable classroom assistant, special educational needs support practitioner, children’s transition officer and early years’ development play worker during her career in childcare and education. This experience will help to shape the setting and create a wonderful environment that children love to spend time in.

Afternoon playschool including Sociable lunch | 11:20am-3:10pm

Your little one can join us for a sociable lunch session before their afternoon playschool session begins. We like our lunchtime to be a social experience for your little ones, and we assist the children in laying out their lunch boxes on tables in social groupings.

We ask you to send your child in with a healthy, balanced lunch box. We will always put any uneaten food back into lunch boxes so you can monitor what is and isn’t popular.
Please remember that Child’s Play is a nut free zone.

We invite little ones from 2-4 years to enter our world of imagination and creativity in afternoon playschool. We create wonderful learning opportunities using our lovely, well-resourced base room and our outside areas.
