Privileged to have a visit at Maerdy Little Ferns today from First Minister of Wales Carwyn Jones and Cllr Leyshon from RCT. They were blown away with the developments of the provision and the organisation over the past 4 years!

Well done to our exceptional staff for continuing to raise the bar and achieving great things in a wonderful community!

Proud to be in the Valleys!!! 😊

Having a lovely evening at the knit stitch and sew session. Our beginners are picking up knitting quickly and it’s lovely to hear stories from our community members of the visit from a Japanese rugby team to Maerdy in 1973 when local women knitted welsh dolls for them to take back to Japan. Does anyone remember this visit? ...

It has been a very busy but yet successful few weeks here at Little Ferns Cwmparc.
The staff would like to inform all parents of the settings accomplishments over the past few weeks.. such as maintaining our 5 score in the Food Hygiene inspection, passing Phase 2 of the Healthy Pre School programme and gaining excellent results in our CIW and Monitoring Tool inspections.
All children ..new and old have settled in extremely well this past 2 weeks and have already began to make wonderful memories with us.
All staff would like to say a big thank you to all the parents for all your support, without your help we would not have achieved all that we have.
Diolch o galon i chi gyd. Thank you all
