Our playgroup takes place from Monday to Fridays from 8.30am until 12.15pm. In this time activities include free play, painting and drawing, creative crafts, reading books, story-time, singing, music and dance, games and outdoor play as well as an educational programme. During our morning playgroup children aged 4 and older spend time learning basic reading, writing and arithmetic skills to help prepare them for when they go to school. Younger children also have plenty of opportunity to learn and lots of exposure to English words, letters and numbers!
We are flexible about the number of days a child can attend every week (although it must be the same days each week) but we would strongly recommend at least 2 or more sessions as the children then settle better and form relationships with the staff and other children more quickly as well as being better able to benefit from our learning programme.
