ABOUT US

We know how important your child is and he/she is important to us too. We aim to deliver the highest quality of care and education to help them achieve their best potential.

We aim to work together with you, to meet your child's individual needs. 


We are a private and voluntary playgroup. All fees and funds raised are used to meet the costs associated with running our playgroup.


We are a member of the Early Years Alliance (EYA), who are a recognised national organisation providing information for parents, committee and staff as well as staff training and promoting learning through play. 

Our staff are trained to OFSTED and EYA recommended standards and we are registered under the Children's Act of 1989, inspected every 3-4 years by OFSTED (see latest report from 2017 Ofsted report details)

We run sessions with a mixed age range of 2-4 years, children of similar ages have similar needs.


These are:

  • To be happy!

  • To explore, experiment, observe and discover.

  • To master the basic physical skills and develop control of their large and fine muscles.

  • To begin to value the culture, religion, race and language of self and others.

  • To enter the world of imagination, fantasies and role play.

  • To develop skills and concepts that will provide a good foundation for future learning.

  • To develop confidence and independence.

  • To develop ability to make choices and decisions for themselves.

  • To succeed and to be praised for their achievement and efforts.
