This term we will be looking more closely at different festivals from the world around us. We are looking at different festivals celebrated in different cultures.
My children love this school i have 2 children there my daughter started 2 years ago and love every minute of it and my son joined under a year ago he has a disability and the school have been great with him they help him along the way and he even gets upset on morning's he don't go and his sister does bless them couldn't wish for a better nursery and the teachers go above and beyond there means to make the children happy parents are always involved and filled in and given lots of opportunities to speck and are how there children are doing well be sad to see my daughter leave here this year but i know they given her a fantastic start in life couldn't wish for better
My eldest daughter loves this playgroup, she is so excited to go every morning. There are loads of different toys to play with and activities to do each day, both indoors and outdoors. The staff are lovely and friendly. My youngest daughter starts in September. I recommend this Playgroup
My little girl has loved being at the under 5’s. The playgroup has a homely feel with the staff being very hands on with the children which Willow has enjoyed when she needs reassurance or a little cuddle!
I’ve not had any problems the whole 2 years being at playgroup. I definitely would recommend :).
"Great place, lovely people, good range of activities and children are always happy".
"All 3 of my children have attended i have never had any problems. All of the staff are very caring and i'm 100% at ease with leaving them, Nothing is too much trouble when my disabled son attended".
"The girls that work at playgroup are all really lovely and treat the children like their own, a very warm loving environment".
"Very well run and organised playgroup".
"Really friendly and welcoming atmosphere. The staff are genuinely interested in the children and how best to meet their needs".
The annual carnival takes place on Saturday 30th June this year and playgroup will be there with our colourful stall. There will be something for all the family, so we hope you will come support us!

Well done to all our children who sang their songs so well and acted ‘The Enormous Turnip’ so well — we had lots of fun preparing it and you all did brilliantly!
