outstanding_colour_eyBarton Playgroup is a small, friendly Ofsted registered preschool and playgroup in the grounds of Barton Primary School.  We are considered one of the best in South Cambridge and were awarded ‘Outstanding’ at our most recent Ofsted visit in July 2015.

We are open Monday – Friday between 9am – 12.00pm during term-time and take children from two-and-half years rising to five years, with a maximum number of 12 children per day.

We also offer an optional Lunch Club from 12.00pm – 1.00pm Monday – Friday and a Toddler Group that meets every Monday 1.30pm – 3.00pm during term-time.

NOTE:  There are currently no spaces.  If you would like to be placed on the waitlist for September 2018, please get in touch.

“Excellent partnerships with parents ensure they are well informed about, and supported with, their children’s ongoing learning and well-being. Parents are regularly invited to share their skills and knowledge with the children in the playgroup”.

“Children are exceptionally well prepared for the next stage in their lives. Excellent systems are in place to support children when they start at the playgroup and progress on to school”.

Children are progressing well in readiness for school…
