WHAT WE OFFER

We provide a safe, fun and stimulating environment for all children to enjoy a balanced variety of adult initiated activities and free play.

Our activities are planned around the children’s interests giving children the best possible start to their early education.

We provide a variety of healthy snacks available throughout every session consisting of wholemeal toast, fresh fruit and milk or water to drink.

Once children leave us to attend Marsden Nursery School we offer a “wrap around service” this allows children to attend Playgroup either before or after their Nursery session giving you full day care (8.45 – 3.30).
