Playgroup-header 2Provision

Our playgroup provides a caring, stimulating and safe environment for children from 2-5 yrs of age; offering a range of equipment to encourage intellectual, physical, social and emotional development.

Equipment used is especially chosen to meet the needs of 2-5 yr olds, including those with special needs.

The atmosphere is friendly and caring, and our aim is to help children to learn through play. Each child is allowed to progress at his or her own rate.


The maximum number of children catered for each session is 24. Four permanent staff plus a long-term student are present each session, one of whom is trained in special needs. Parents are welcome to help in playgroup. We value the help and input our parents/carers provide.
