  • Sessions are term-time only, in the morning and/or afternoon.
  • Some open longer and a few offer full day care.

A pre-school playgroup might be for you if:

  • You’d like your child to mix with other children.
  • Your child would like to play with a range of toys.
  • Your hours fit around opening and closing times.
  • There is always someone qualified to look after your child.
