We are regulated by the Care Inspectorate for Wales (CIW) and adhere to the National Minimum Standards for Childcare. We provide care for children aged from 2 to 12 years up to a maximum of 40 children and adhere to CIW's recommended adult:child ratios.

We offer a range of play activities/workshops in a welcoming and safe atmosphere. We operate an Equal Opportunities and Inclusion policy, offering freedom from discrimination.


Bwlchgwyn Cabin Crew has become a vital community resource for many local families and is of huge benefit to Bwlchgwyn School. We are extremely proud of the findings of our most recent CIW inspection ( as well as being awarded ‘Out of School Club of the Year’ and 'Playgroup of the Year' by Wrexham Childcare Awards.  


The school's Governing Body has always given its support to this venture and is now very pleased to see how successful it has become. We are also very fortunate that our Head Teacher is very supportive and understands the role of the club and how it interacts with the school. 


Bwlchgwyn Cabin Crew is managed by a small group of volunteer parents who employ a team of staff, all of whom are DBS checked and suitably qualified. In addition to their childcare qualifications staff also hold first aid, food hygiene and safeguarding qualifications as a minimum.
