Rattlesden Playgroup was established in 1970, and became Rattlesden Preschool in 2019. Preschool firmly believes in learning through play. We are affiliated to the Pre-school Learning Alliance and work in partnership with Suffolk County Council. We are listed in the List of Providers. Parents form the committee which is the registered provider. We take part in community events, such as Fireworks or the Duck race.
We link with the local school, attending their harvest assemblies and nativity plays. We also join the reception class at least once a term. We work closely with the Early years and childcare service to help support children with Additional Needs.
We use Tapestry, an online learning journal to enable parents to see their child's records and also allow for a smooth transition to Primary School. Evaluations are completed online and parents can add comments.
We have also added a Facebook page which shows our activities and provides updates of forthcoming events.
We have a new website now up and running.
We encourage our children to "think outside the box" and to be creative. Learning through play allows children to explore their world.
You are welcome to visit us to see us in action. Please get in touch. We provide 'taster sessions' to help you make up your mind.
