Welcome to Nightingales Day Nursery in Tonypandy

Who Are We

An Outstanding Day Nursery

Nightingales Day Nursery has been  open since September 2013 in the village of Penygraig. It was identified that a playgroup provision was desperately needed within the local area. Working closely with Ysgol Yr Eos primary school. We have now relocated and expanded our service to provide an excellent Day Nursery provision, based in Ysgol Nantgwyn.

We are open for 50 weeks from Monday to Friday. Our opening times are 7.30-6.00pm. As well as offering Day Care, we have playgroup sessions both morning and afternoon, wraparound care and Kingfishers after school and holiday club.

About Us

A Brief Introduction

Thank you for expressing an interest in Nightingales Day Nursery. At Nightingales we have a fully equipped play room, teaching both English with basic ‘everyday’ Welsh. We also use basic sign language as a means of communication. We have low level storage, to promote independent play and encourage children to make choices. We follow a daily timetable, which allows us to have a structured but flexible approach. We plan for the children’s education as well as their individual needs and interests. We have a wonderful outside play area and promote a free flow setting, allowing the children to have as many choices as possible and develop their independence and decision making skills. We are situated within the school grounds, but have our own entrance and facilities. We work closely with the school to ensure children making the transition into the Nursery are well prepared and ready to move forward into school life.  


We will produce written plans for your child showing how we will promote learning through fun, structured ‘play’ activities as well as allowing time in the day for independent play and response to spontaneous events. We will also encourage children to interact with each other, developing essential social skills. We have a range of quality toys and books and lots of ideas for fun learning activities. We will also plan play activities in order to ensure your child develops emotionally, physically and socially. You will have access to evidence of your child’s learning as well as receiving general daily notes/verbal communication. All other documentation required by CIW.    

Qualified and Experienced Staff

We believe that the service we provide reflects the care we would expect our own children to receive. Your child will be cared for in a safe, welcoming and above all learning and stimulating environment.  Our dedicated team of professional staff have a wide range of qualifications and experience. They have endless play ideas and make everyday exciting and fun!
