Barton Playgroup meets in the grounds of Barton Primary School. We have very strong links with the school but operate independently of them. A lot of children leave the Playgroup and go on to attend the school.

Children receive payments from The Early Years Education Funding Scheme for the term after the one in which their third birthday falls. Each child is entitled to 15 hours of funding, which they are free to use at two settings.

Children who are too young to receive funding are charged a fee for each session and Lunch Club attended. The cost for a 3-hour session is £12.50 and Lunch Club is £5.

Playgroup follows the Early Years Foundation Stage Curriculum and each child is assessed  and encouraged to progress at their own pace. We are inspected and approved by OFSTED.

More details of our overall principles and philosophies and details of how we operate are outlined in the Prospectus.

If you are interested in joining in the fun or would like further information, please download our Introductory Family Pack or simply give us a call to arrange a visit.
