Four days a week (Monday to Thursday) we run a small playgroup, for children aged 2 years 6 months to the time when they start nursery. Four children attend each day (i.e. 16 individuals per week). There is a long waiting, priority is given to children who have older siblings in the main Nursery. These sessions are funded by parents (£10 per session). If you are in receipt of a two year old Golden Ticket this can also be used to fund your child’s place.
For 2 hours, parents can leave their child (again with a qualified TA3) to experience the varied and age appropriate activities.
These short sessions act as a wonderful introduction to their Nursery year. Children who have been to Playgroup settle well into Nursery – and provide a settled core for each new class.
