Great Finborough & Buxhall Under 5's

Pre-School Playgroup

We are a small, friendly village pre-school providing high quality care and education. All our staff are fully qualified with a wealth of practical experience. We operate a Key worker scheme so that all children are treated as individuals and their specific needs met. We offer the children a safe and stimulating environment and benefit from having sole use of our bright and inviting main pre-school room. Adjoining this is a small, purpose built outside area ideal for sand and water play and for exploring the natural environment, i.e. planting seeds. We also have access to a large hall for more physical play and an upstairs room for quieter activities requiring more concentration. Due to our high staffing levels we are able to run activities for different age groups and have a wide selection of toys and equipment to support all ages. As a village location there are some safe wonderful area's to visit, including a play park and woodpecker woods which is also used by the local primary school. We also offer plenty of craft activities.

Our parents also hold a Mother and Toddler/baby session on a Friday morning 9:30 - 11:15, everyone welcome. This is run completely voluntary by parents and gives parents a chance to meet, socialise both parents and children, song time, craft time and snack is provided. First session is free, £2 thereafter.
