A playgroup for pre-school aged children runs on Monday, Tuesday, Wednesday and Thursday mornings, from 9.30am to 12.30pm, during school term times.

We are registered with Ofsted and take a maximum of 32 children per session with a minimum of 5 staff working with the children each morning.

Parents are encouraged to get involved through the Parents' Rota when they can spend a morning at Playgroup (not currently operating due to Covid-19 restrictions) and we also have provision for two parents on the Management Committee.

As with all Early Years settings, we follow the Early Years Foundation Stage curriculum and use this in the planning of the activities provided.

Each day the children will have the opportunity to
experience activities from the following:

  • Sand, water or woodwork
  • Painting / chalking
  • Art / craft / cooking
  • Play dough / clay / cornflour etc
  • Home corner (role play)
  • Construction activity e.g. Duplo, lego, building bricks etc
  • Jigsaws
  • Pretend play e.g. Cars, trains, dolls house etc
  • Table top games
  • Books, writing and drawing
  • Large apparatus / bikes / balls and hoops / parachute games / see-saws / tunnel / slides
  • Singing / nursery rhymes / musical instruments / drama
  • Story time

There is a book corner available at all time for children to look at books or for them to have stories read to them if they wish.
