The Playgroup is within the Community Centre, right in the centre of the village next to the Library. There is a large room, subdivided into different areas for a range of activities, and an extensive outside space, with the children able to move between as they choose throughout the day. 

The indoor space includes a home corner, a reading corner used for carpet time and throughout the day, drawing and painting areas, and multiple other islands throughout filled with rotating activities to keep the children engaged and constantly learning something new.

The outdoor space includes a permanent sandpit, climbing tower with slide and other play equipment, lots of vehicles, a new mud kitchen undercover and a very popular fire engine. This is used all year round with children dressed appropriately for the weather.

Outside space to play

The outside space comes as a surprise to people who don't know Playgroup, and is our favourite area. There is a climbing frame, mud kitchen, ride on fire-engine, large sand-pit, water play, busy boards, so many ride on vehicles, construction area, obstacle courses and so much more. Children can use the garden free-flow on any day as long as they are dressed appropriately for the weather.
