Half a term’s notice in lieu of fees is required before withdrawal of child, whether funded or fee paying.

Joining Playgroup

All parents of children registered for entry in September are invited to the New Parents/Carers Evening, prior to the start of term, where full information regarding all aspects of playgroup is given.

A notice is put in the Parish Newsletter, which is delivered to 4,000 homes in the local area, inviting anyone interested in finding out about the playgroup to come and visit us.

The Playgroup Parent Handbook is given to parents before their child start.

Each child and parents’ individual needs will be taken into account.

As your child progresses the new extended hours are open to you.
