New Phone Number

We are pleased to say that, from August 23rd, we will have a new, dedicated phone line at playgroup. Our contact number will be 01786 430497.

We are still reachable via the centre caretakers on the old number.

Welcome Back

We are pleased to say that Playgroup reopens following the summer holiday on Monday August 20th at 9:15am. We are looking forward to seeing our children and hearing all the holiday news 😊.

We are also pleased to announce that Lynda Simpson will be taking over the role of Playgroup administrator. Linda is already known to many of our parents and children and we are delighted to welcome her to our staff team.

Should children be able to read and write by age 4?

Shocked by this article which states there are concerns that children are starting school unable to read or write. And, if that wasn’t bad enough, it clarifies that this is at age 4! Thank goodness I live and work in Scotland where we are a little more in tune with children’s learning and development 🤷🏼‍♀️
