Information For Parents
Our AimsWe aim to ensure that each child:
We want your child to feel happy and safe with us. To make sure that this is the case, the staff will work with you to decide on how to help your child to settle into the setting. Parents are welcome in the Playgroup at any time. We hope child(ren) will settle easily into the group and we try to make this as comfortable as possible. There is no rush to introduce the children; we encourage you to spend time in the group with your child until they feel secure and familiar with the surroundings. If you prefer to leave them, we will give your child one to one attention until the child feels happy and secure.
We recognise that not every child is toilet trained when they start playgroup. We have regular times when all children are asked if they need to use the toilet to encourage them to use it. Children who are not toilet trained will need to bring nappies and wipes in a bag. We have facilities for changing nappies and staff will change nappies as required.
More information on daily routines, snack time and day-to-day running of the playgroup can be found Here.

Admissions and Session Times
We hold morning and some afternoon sessions and take children from two and half to school age in term time. The timetable below allows parents to select the sessions that are right for their child. Sessions can be gradually added and lunch sessions can be attended as desired (spaces permitting).
The Rising 5's afternoon sessions includes time for lunch and all children need to bring their lunch with them. There is an option on Tuesday, Thursday and Friday for children to bring lunch and stay an extra hour until 1.00pm. There is a charge of £2.50 for the extra hour. Optional lunch sessions do not need to be booked in advance.
Fees for 2012/2013 and the Government Grant
Reduced Rates and Fee Waivers - The Playgroup has reduced rates for parents with twins or more than one child at the playgroup. Fees can be waived or reduced for any family who is struggling to meet the cost of Playgroup fees at the discretion of the Committee. Any parent worried about the cost of fees should discuss this with the Playleader.
The Playgroup is registered with Computer Share Voucher Services and will accept this method of payment should you wish to use it. Childcare vouchers are available for all eligible working parents, and could help reduce your Childcare costs even further as they are non-taxable and exempt from National Insurance contributions.
