About Ely & Caerau Integrated Children’s Centre
The Centre provides integrated, high quality services to children and adults through a multi-agency approach. We aim to provide the best possible environment for care, education, health, wellbeing and development within our learning community. We are an inclusive Centre and recognise individual needs offering equality of opportunity to all.
We actively foster warm relationships within the Centre in order to develop a positive self-image, confidence and a feeling of well-being for all. We aim to use the medium of Welsh in as many situations as possible throughout the Centre and support the development of the Welsh culture. Nursery education is offered through the medium of Welsh and English.
Our Philosophy is to be…
- Respectful – Everyone is respectful of each other and everything, within the centre and the wider community.
- United – Sharing skills, knowledge and interests, being inclusive makes us stronger together.
- Kind and Caring – looking out for each other, being mindful and supportive of each other’s needs.
- Responsible – Positive role modelling in an environment where everyone feels safe and secure.
- Happy – A community where everyone feels valued, accepted and has a sense of belonging.
Welcome Letter from the Head
Dear Parents & Carers,
On behalf of the whole team, I’m delighted to welcome you to the Ely and Caerau Integrated Children’s Centre Website. We look forward to working with you and your child during these vital early years and are committed to providing the highest quality care and education. As an Integrated Children’s Centre, we work with a range of partners to offer services to families such as, Child Care (Day Care, After School Club and Holiday Club), Community Room groups for you and your babies / young children, Welsh and English medium Nursery Education and Adult Learning Opportunities.
There are many things that you can get involved with at the Centre, this prospectus gives you lots of information but please ask if you’re unsure about anything or would like further clarification. We truly value your input and want to work with you to secure the best possible outcomes for your child as well as providing you with opportunities to be nurtured, engage in learning opportunities, access information and get to know other parents.
I will be happy to show you around the Centre and talk to you about what we do here, just ask at reception and we can arrange a time.
We’d like you to feel relaxed and ‘at home’ so please don’t hesitate to voice your opinions, share successes or any concerns. My door is always open!
I look forward to getting to know you,
Head of Centre
