The Playgroup has close links to Waterbeach Community Primary School. Visits are made to school by the Playgroup in the summer before the children start and Teachers from the school also visit the Playgroup to get to know the children. WASPS (Waterbeach After School Play Scheme) Is one of the after school club which operate off of the school site.
Further information about the school can be found on the Waterbeach Community Primary School website.
We are members of the Waterbeach Community Association which is an alliance of the community groups, organisations and interested individuals from the villages of Waterbeach, Landbeach and Chittering. They organise various social events throughout the year including the Waterbeach Feast, a major village event for nearly 40 years, in which the playgroup always enters a float in the parade and has a stall with children's (and adults!) games.
Dolphin Children's Centre
We are lucky to have a SureStart Children's Centre in the village, based in the grounds of the School. The centre provides a range of information and drop-in sessions for children aged 0-5 years.
Preschool Learning Alliance
We are also members of the Preschool Learning Alliance - the largest early years membership organisation and voluntary sector provider of quality affordable childcare and education in England. An educational charity, the Alliance represents the interests of over 14,000 member settings who deliver care and learning to over 800,000 families every year.
