About Us

We are a community playgroup for children aged between two and five years old, based at The Village Centre in the heart of Staplehurst, Kent.

We provide a fun, safe and stimulating environment, with highly qualified and experienced staff who are experts on learning through play, as well as being wonderful, fun and caring individuals who give the playgroup its very special family feel!

With a high staff-to-child ratio, our children enjoy optimal attention across a range of exciting and varied activities, both inside the hall, and also outside in our large fenced play area. For our older children, we provide 'Ready for School' sessions, familiarising them with letters, numbers, and other important skills they will need for their next big step to school.

We welcome parental involvement, and offer opportunities for you to join your child during their day to play and enjoy the facilities. We also have an active committee running events and social activities.

Staplehurst Under 5 Playgroup is part of
Kent County Council’s Free Childcare scheme for two, three and four year olds.
