Day to day

Your child's day

Our sessions are arranged so that the children can take part in a range of child-chosen and adult-lead activities.  The children are also encouraged to take part in small and large group activities which introduce them to new experiences and help them to gain new skills.  Our current session planning grid can be viewed here.

Parent helpers are always welcome; helping during a session can be a great way to find out what your child(ren) does with their time at playgroup. There is a parent/carer rota in the Craft Room - please do sign up!



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 £3.00 for the extra hour. Optional lunch sessions do not need to be booked in advance.
