Martlesham Playschool

Pre-School Playgroup

Martlesham Playschool has been around for over 30 years, and you can find us in a brightly colored building at the end of Deben Ave, Martlesham. The playschool is run by a voluntary committee which work very closely with the Manager and Business Manager. We have a manager, Sarah, a deputy manager, Emma  and a small team of Early Years  Practitioners, as well as couple of Bank staff members. We run each session with 5 members of staff on duty during each session. Our staff have fantastic parent partnership relationships which as a setting feel this is incredibly important to work together to provide the best possible outcomes for children and their families. Inclusion policy: We have multicultural posters, pictures & dual language notices. We have multicultural dolls, books, dressing-up outfits & puppets.We find out from parents any dietary requirements before their child starts. We have a wonderful, large, bright and inviting playroom where we have easily accessible toys, games and activities. There is a quiet/book area with a good selection of books, or bean bags to relax on. Off the main room we have the lobby, office, kitchen, toilets and our new sensory room. The sensory room provides a calm and relaxing environment for all children, the sensory room has comfortable bean bags, sensory toys, projectors and much more stimulating resources.  From the main room there is also access to a safe and secure outside area which is part canopied. We have a grass area as well as the patio area for all sorts of outside activities and gardening. The children are fond of our mud kitchen.
We have a snack time during each session where we offer a healthy snack and drinks. Which encourage children to be independent and provide a rolling snack. If children stay for lunch then children bring their own packed lunch, we are a NUT FREE environment. We sit together at the table where a member of staff is present at each table to supervise and support the children in a lovely social environment.  We have cooking club once a week where children get the opportunity to bake and cook exciting and different foods. At the end of each term we organise an end of term party, as well as the school leavers having a graduation.
We are able to take the children out on a woodland walk which is run internally by Emma (Deputy) called Little explorers, the children take magnifying  glasses, clip boards and go on all kinds of exciting adventures. We also run local trips to  the post office or the bakers shop. We also organise other visits further afield, ie. Jimmy’s Farm, Baylham Rare Breeds, Easton Farm Park, Play2Day, Rendlesham Forest or time at the beach. Our fund-raising team organises many events throughout the year, eg. Our successful fun day, pamper evenings, and getting the children to create calendars, tile handprints, place mats for sale. We are a very friendly, happy playschool! 

WE ARE OPEN MONDAY-FRIDAY TERM TIME ONLY 8AM-4PM.
