Where the learning adventure begins................

The nursery

The nursery is situated just five miles outside Aberystwyth town centre, surrounded by wonderful countyside to explore. 

Our nursery is registered for 49 children and we have five groups to enable the best care for all their abilities.The environments are stimulating and adapted to suit the developmental needs and interests of the children.

We are a bilingual nursery providing care throughout the nursery in both English and Welsh.We support families and children with additional languages by incorporating words, numbers and song’s from their chosen language.

We are open for 51 weeks in the year. We are closed from Christmas to NewYear and all bank holidays. Our fees are adjusted so you pay the same every month for ease of payment.The fees are increased annually and we will notify you at least a month prior to the increase. Our current

“fees will be posted on the parents notice board for your information.

Our opening hours are from 8am to 6pm Monday to Friday with sessions running between 8am - 1pm and 1pm - 6pm.We understand the need for flexible childcare therefore if you need a more flexible pattern of attendance please talk to the Nursery Manager who may be able to offer a better solution.

Settling in

You are bound to feel a little apprehensive as you prepare to leave your child in nursery for the first time, you are not alone all parents feel the same. So we want you to be completely comfortable with the choice you have made.

We can put your mind at rest through our safe, stimulating and loving environment.

With high standards of care and excellent facilities we can reassure you along the way.

Each child is assigned a Key Person, someone who is responsible for your child’s learning experience, critical one to one moments of care and play and communication with families.

Settling your child into our nursery is important so we offer sessions for you and your child
to get to know staff and to get used to the environment, these sessions are free and help
us to get a clear overview of your child’s needs. The sessions begin a month prior to your child’s start date and are arranged to suit you and your child’s needs.

For children to progress at their own pace, it is important that the care is appropriate to the developmental stage for each child. 

Welcome to Gogerddan Childcare, my name is Emma Healy and I am the Managing Director. I started working at Plas Gogerddan Nursery in 1997 and my passion for providing the best care and education has now lead me to fulfill a dream of mine by setting up my own company. 

I have two young children, India and Austin who keep me very busy to say the least! Having children of my own has given me the opportunity to look closer at child development, responding to different personalities, how boys and girls learn etc. Being a busy working Mum has given me a deeper understanding of what it is really like for working families.
