Awarded ‘outstanding’ at the last Ofsted visit

Barton Playgroup is a small, friendly Ofsted registered preschool and playgroup in the heart of Barton, Cambridge.  We are considered one of the best in South Cambridge and was awarded ‘Outstanding’ at our last Ofsted visit in July 2015.

We are open Monday – Friday between 9am – 12.00pm during term-time and offer an optional Lunch Club from 12.00pm – 1.00pm.  We also have a Toddler Group that meets every Monday 1.30pm – 3.00pm, term-time only.

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.

If you are interested in finding out more about the Playgroup or want to enquire about places for 2019/2020, feel free to get in touch.

“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”.
