Our playgroup has been serving Woodbridge and surrounding villages for the past 40 years, with daily morning and afternoon sessions in a safe, happy and secure environment. Children enjoy a wide range of activities, supervised by caring staff that also have a vast experience of children with additional needs. We have a secure private garden. We have strong links to St Mary's Church of England Primary School, which is located next door, and we have access to their large playing field. We have extended opening hours between 8am-6pm and accept 2 year old, 3 year old and 30 hour funding. We have a recent Ofsted rating of 'Good' with 'Outstanding' in some areas.
