Every day an adventure!

From its start in 1965, our Pre-school Playgroup for 2 – 5 year olds has developed to be a well-established setting which is highly valued in our community.  Our caring and experienced staff members have all worked with us for many years and provide a safe, caring and stimulating environment. We are a fully inclusive practice and welcome children from all backgrounds, including those with English as an additional language, and we have extensive experience supporting children with special educational needs and disabilities. We offer 2 year funded places to eligible children, as well as the universal 15 hours for 3+ year olds and 30 hour funding to eligible families. Our location adjacent to the Radcliffe on Trent Infant and Nursery School is ideal for transition and we work closely with them and other schools to ensure a positive transition for children moving on.  We also work closely with local childminders to support our families.
