At Derwen Deg we aim to provide new and exciting experiences for the children on a daily basis. Our room leaders choose and plan a wide range of activities which are based around a theme or topic of the month. The activities are aimed to encourage each individual child to develop their own sense of confidence and creativity. The staff aim to guide the children towards making healthy choices, keeping safe and building on their emotional well being.

There are plenty of fun free play areas for the children to enjoy some independence and socialising with friends. We fully support children who are toilet training and have toilet/ changing facilities to suit the age range. We are also able to currently offer a school pick up/ drop off system within the local area for children who have started attending main stream education.
