The Playgroup takes children from two-and-half years to five years, with a maximum number of 12 children per day.

We are situated in the grounds of Barton Primary School and have a great indoor and outdoor setting with a wealth of toys, soft play and equipment for the children to enjoy.

“The playgroup environment is highly stimulating and the quality of teaching is outstanding. There is a strong cycle of observation, assessment and planning that precisely supports children’s next steps in their learning. As a result, children are highly motivated, engaged in exciting activities and, are making excellent progress in their learning”.
