The mandate of the playgroup is to;
'Enhance the development and education of children under statutory school age by encouraging parents to understand and provide for the needs of their children through a community group'.

Our setting believes that care and education are equally important in the experience that we offer children, The routines and the activities that make up the session in the setting are provided in ways that help show that each child is valued, ensures the safety of the child , helps children learn from the social experience of being part of a group and provides them with learning opportunities. Our sessions are organised with both child and adult led sessions.
