Session opening times are as follows:

  • Morning sessions - Monday - Friday 9am - 12pm   (each session lasts for 3 hours.)
  • Afternoon sessions - Monday - Thursday 12pm - 3pm (The playgroup is closed on a Friday afternoon.)

Playgroup sessions can either be 3 hours (half a day) or 6 hours, a whole day, with the child staying for lunch.  We accept children from the age of 2 years and 6 months. The cost of each session before your child is entitled to the Government nursery grant is £9.50.  If your child has received the nursery grant of 15 hours and you require additional hours on top then you will be charged £11.73 per session.

Children are entitled to the Government nursery grant from the term after their 3rd birthday.

The playgroup employs 6 members of staff, 4 full time, a financial administrator who works on a part time basis and a lunch time supervisor.

We currently have a waiting list in operation as there is a high demand for places.
