The Importance of Playgroups

​Attending a playgroup helps children be away from their parents/main carers, begin to make friends, learn to share and have different experiences to extend their development.  If you are interested in your child joining our playgroup please get in touch! We do have a waiting list however it is never to early to put down your child's name.
