Chadlington Playgroup

Chadlington Playgroup ‘Little Learners’

A friendly, OFSTED registered village playgroup based in Chadlington, providing a safe and homely environment that nurtures children through play. Chadlington Playgroup offers a wide range of activities including singing, dancing, gardening, cooking and crafts to encourage your child to develop and blossom.

We are very excited to announce that Chadlington playgroup has a fresh new name, logo and approach, we will now be known as ‘Chadlington Little Learners’. This change will encompass many improvements and will mean a fresh new    beginning for everyone, we will continue to have your little learners at the centre of what we do and as well as adopting new ways of learning and a more up to date approach to our setting we will be embracing all that has worked well in the past.

We will still be currently running under our original Ofsted and Charity number/Chadlington Playgroup Committee until our new registration is ready.

Our mission is for each child to develop a curiosity of learning where they are able to explore their interests in a homely, safe, loving and fun environment. We will help your child to lay a foundation of learning, exploration, and discovery and support each child as the unique individuals that they are. As an early year’s setting we will strive to empower each child with the life skills to become inquisitive, happy, confident and accomplished children.

As part of our new approach we will be replacing a lot of the colourful plastic toys and replacing them with more natural, wooden and open-ended resources, we will be adopting different ways of learning from various approaches that     focus on a more nature-based approach to learning. Greater opportunities to play outdoors will be given and our aim is to provide a much calmer setting and environment for your child. We very much hope that we have your full support and would welcome parents to come and join us during a session, to help out and observe your child during play. We look forward to having you all on board to  experience this positive and exciting new beginning.

Playgroup sessions take place at the Bowls Club in the mornings of Monday, Tuesday and Thursday, with Forest School on a Wednesday and Friday morning. There is also a lunch club available on Monday, Tuesday and Wednesday. The Playgroup caters for children from ages 2 to 5.

Unfortunately the Parent and Toddler Group has been suspended but offers to re-establish the group would be welcomed by the Playgroup Committee, contact Mrs S Appleton 01993 832282.
