Community Cafe January - Update

Owing to the current Covid situation Playgroup will not be involved in running the cafe this month but hopes to be involved in one later in the year.

Covid precautions

We are continuing with our measures including enhanced cleaning, restricting visitors to the setting, and regular staff testing.  We ask parents and carers to wear a mask when anywhere on the school site, including along the drive, and to maintain social distancing, following the markings on the school drive.

If your child has symptoms of, or tests positive for, Covid please do not come into Playgroup but obtain a test as appropriate and isolate for the required period (currently 7 days if followed by 2 negative LFD tests, or 10 days depending on your circumstances).  If your child is unwell while at Playgroup we will ask you to collect them and test/isolate as appropriate.


Thank you for your support.  We wish you a happy, healthy and fun first term of 2022!

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.
