My son is very happy every time he comes back from the Playgroup. We can see his speech and social skills have developed. (Parent Questionnaire - December 2019)
We love the local aspect. Everyone is so friendly and welcoming. We love the variety of toys and activities. (Parent Questionnaire - December 2019)
My son started at the Playgroup in Spring 2019 and settled in very quickly. The staff are exceptionally friendly and informative. There is a lovely atmosphere and the children appear to be very happy. My son looks forward to going and is very enthusiastic with the activities and is quite happy being left with his friends.

We like the flexibility of available days and communication regarding settling children who are nervous. (Parent Questionnaire - December 2019)
Communication is personalised, clear and useful. We are kept so well informed about each week.
The environment is nurturing and supportive. My daughter has been sensitively supported with her eczema and allergy needs. I am really impressed with the activities - she has completed woodwork, clay and cookery projects and she loves the fresh play dough! (Parent Questionnaire - December 2019)
Communication about what the children are learning or doing is excellent. (Parent Questionnaire - December 2019)
My children settled very quickly - clearly happy to attend. I've had lot's of talk about what they've done there. They like finding out each week what they are doing from Bev's email.

The Nature Garden is fantastic .
It's well set up with different areas. We get good weekly updates. They have healthy snacks and my child is happy. (Parent Questionnaires - December 2019)
Playgroup staff have a very good relationship with the children. They are kind and caring and I am always confident that my daughter is in safe hands. The environment is well organised and routines well established. Weekly plans are always emailed as well as any other news/events. Communication is very good. The children have the opportunity to take part in a variety of activities. My daughter has come home and talked about yoga and the different poses and has also brought home examples of woodwork. I thought the work they did on spiders was great and the board they created from their work. It was lovely to see. I also really like the digital photo frame because quite often a photo pops up of my daughter when I am coming into or leaving playgroup and that's lovely to see. She often comes home and talks about stories they have had at playgroup and is also starting to pick up more Welsh, through songs and rhymes etc. It's great that Welsh speaking parents have been utilised to help the children learn more Welsh.

My son has been attending Playgroup since September 2019 and I'm really happy with Shirenewtyon Playgroup. After a few tearful weeks and the support of the staff, he has really settled. There is a nice feel to the playgroup and everyone is really friendly. I like the variety of tasks the children do and he has certainly improved greatly with colours and shapes since joining. I really like the kindness board and it was really nice that his acts of kindness were noticed (even though he didn't want stickers). I love all the photographs and collages that are put together and that the children are also involved (i.e: taking photos). We are extremely well informed as to what's happening, dates for diaries and what's happening each week and Bev offers a wealth of knowledge on other areas. (Parent Questionnaire - December 2019)
