2½ Years And Over
As a first step away from home, our Playgroup provides a warm, homely environment in which young children can flourish. The group is led by Synnøve Frankel with an assistant. Attended without parents/carers, the Playgroup welcomes up to eight toddlers, and enables them to develop independence, meet new friends, learn social skills and have fun!
During the session, imagination and creativity are nurtured through free play with simple toys and natural materials within the room and outside space. Outside, the group enjoys its own sandpit and mud kitchen, as well as nature walks through the beautifully maintained school grounds, and use of the Kindergarten garden. Each child has the opportunity to help prepare and share together a healthy and organic snack. The session ends with a short circle time which can include songs, finger rhymes, stories or a puppet show. This group provides a stepping stone before children make the progression into Kindergarten at the age of 3½ years.
The Playgroup is held on Monday, Tuesday and Wednesday mornings, from 9.30am - 11.25am during term time. The cost is £12 per session payable in half-termly blocks.
