We are a small village playgroup, offering care from the age of 2 years until primary school.  We have a secure modern building and enclosed garden area.

Our friendly and enthusiastic staff will encourage your child to develop and grow to the best of their ability in a safe and happy environment.

We are open Monday to Friday during term time and selected school holidays. Our core opening hours are 9.00am to 3.30pm with the option of additional care between 8.00am - 9.00am and 3.30pm - 4.30pm.

We accept all Government funding - 2 year old, 15 hour universal and 30 hour extended.  Payment is also accepted through the government Tax-Free Childcare scheme.  Please contact us for further information or visit the Childcare Choices website.

A fantastic Pre-School
One of my children has already been through this Pre-School and has now moved on to school, I also have another child who is now at the Pre-School. The first left with a good understanding of what to expect at scool as the Pre-School prepares the children for the transition. My youngest child started as a shy and introverted child. She is now happy and much more confident. She has come out of her shell and it's partly down to the encouragement she gets here. I have never, ever worried about my children while they are here. The keyworkers are amazing, they give care and attention to all of the children and are on the ball. They take into account the childrens personalities and take everything about them into consideration. I cannot recommend it enough.

Thank you for your lovely review, it is very much appreciated.

Fabulous preschool playgroup
This is a lovely small preschool playgroup with friendly knowledgeable staff who always make the children and family/carers welcome.  They have a wide choice of activities and play equipment with free play and structured learning. My own children went here and now my grandson which he thoroughly enjoys. if you’re looking to send your little one to preschool this one is lovely and I can highly recommend it.
