We are a family run business based in St Clears. 10 miles just out side of Carmarthen. The idea came about from Nia a mum of 2 children. Who also has a background within the Early Years sector and holds a number of Early Years qualifications as well as a trainers qualification.
What Nia says :- “Throughout my time I have worked in a number of different roles, supporting children aged between 0-5 years , some with complex needs. I have also supported a number of settings across the South of England and South Wales to deliver better outcomes for children through play based experiences.
Seeing the joy and the benefit that role play or imaginative play had, with not just my own children but also the children who I have had the privilege of working with over the years. I was keen to set up a children’s play centre with a difference. One that would be able to provide children with first class opportunities to enable them to develop in a happy, safe and stimulating environment that promotes learning through play.Dre Twt is a “Twt” version of a town with realistic locations, reflecting the roles that we know and love within our community, such as a supermarket, beauty salon, vet surgery, theatre, cafe, builders yard and Post office, with a mini road that links them altogether. Children are able to become whoever they want to be.”
To make sure that children get the most out of each area within the town. A team of Early Years professionals came together to provide their expertise in how the areas should not only enhance children’s play but how the areas and the resources within it would help develop children’s thinking and learning skills. Also planning and providing a positive stimulating environment that allows parents and carers to play and interact with their children through sessional activities. Our resources are of high quality with many of them being wooden toys.
We also retail a number of products to purchase. We are an official Melissa and Doug toy stockist along with Le Toy Van and also Small Foot Wooden Toys.
All staff are fully trained and have an up to date DBS check. Staff are also trained in Paediatric First Aid.
We aim for each session to be of a high quality and for children to gain the most out of their session. Dre Twt has gone through rigorous safety checks and each station is regularly inspected. During the session staff will discreetly return items that have been discarded to their rightful place without interrupting children’s play, this way children can continue to enjoy their play.
Our play sessions are run at set times and are 75 minutes long week days and 90 minutes long at weekends.
In order for every child to gain the most enjoyment out of their time at Dre Twt we limit the amount of numbers attending each session, therefore we strongly advise to book in advance. You’re welcome to turn up, but we cannot guarantee entry if our sessions are full and we would hate to disappoint. Our online booking system is simple to use. If we are fully booked or closed for a private booking, time slots on the online booking form will not be available to be booked. We can only take telephone bookings one hour before a session and payment must be made prior to the session, these are subject to availability
Refreshments. As we are a small play area we do not have a (real cafe) this would also take away from the children session time if you were to sit and have a meal. We do however sell tea, coffee, hot chocolate, soft drinks and pre- packed snack such as chocolate and crisps.
Parking We have space for 4 cars outside of Dre Twt, cars should revers park when parking outside of Dre Twt to avoid accidents. More parking is available down the lane between Dre Twt and the Santa Clara within the church car park.
We kindly ask that Dre Twt customers can avoid parking in the drive to the left of the building as this is private property.
