Child’s Play St. Davids
Meet the team
Child’s Play is a vibrant, busy and happy setting based within St David’s Primary School grounds, in its own demountable building in the West Cross area of Swansea. We are fortunate to have a wonderful environment which includes our own entrance way with intercom, an outside play area, two large airy classrooms, sleep room and kitchen.

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’ developmental play worker during her career in childcare and education.
Sam’s experience helps to shape our setting and creates a wonderful environment that children love to spend time in.
