Playgroup is a vital part of early education and we help children prepare for junior school, learn to play, and be part of a group with new friends. Our playgroup is creative, imaginitive, professionally managed, and designed to encourage the best development for your child.

Our Homework Club and Afterschool Service is available to all children of primary school age, and our qualified care staff organise activities according to age and development stage. Art and crafts, sports, baking, board games, and movies and pizzas on Fridays are all part of the fun that helps to keep young minds stimulated.

In September 2010 we opened our Creche Service.  This provides a stimulating, fun enviroment for children over 3mths.

Along with our Creche, Playgroup and Afterschool services, we also provide Holiday camps and special events for the children.  You can find out more about our summer camps here.

We welcome input from parents, encourage participation and feedback, and strongly believe in community spirit. Ultimately what makes us happy is seeing the children who come to our playschool developing and flourishing, and enjoying themselves in the process.
