Si Lwli

Cardiff-based Welsh language day nursery Si Lwli is using apprenticeships to develop skilled workers to provide the best care possible for families and children.

Employing 20 staff, Si Lwli shares best practice with and learns from other nurseries to ensure that staff continuously improve their skills and knowledge.

The company has 7 apprentices working towards Apprenticeships in Childcare from Levels 2 to 4 and both managers, Kimberley Hellyar and Sophie Lewis, have completed a Higher Apprenticeship (Level 5) in Leadership and Management.

All the apprenticeships are delivered by Ystrad Mynach-based training provider Educ8 Training and Si Lwli says they have enabled the nursery to build a reputation for delivering quality care by training, developing and retaining skilled staff.
