Bobtails Playgroup is a pre-school that offers a safe, caring environment for children. We have recently been built a brand new building funded by a government grant. It is fully equiped for pre-school children and is a great asset to the local community. The fully qualified and dedicated staff are able to provide children with a fun learning atmosphere. Children are encouraged to learn their names by sight and recognise shapes, colours and learn to count. There is a topic most weeks, for which children are encouraged to bring items to ‘show’. Each child is allocated a key worker and progress records are kept on all the children. Workbooks are completed with rising four year olds.
Children who attend Busy Bees Pre-school (next door in St. Andrews School) can be taken there for their afternoon session by Bobtails staff.
Bobtails has two outside play areas with a pirate ship, sandpit, toddler slide, trikes, tandems and other outdoor toys. Children are encouraged to play outside and we have the benefit of an all-weather canopy.
Children are offered a healthy mid morning snack and drink.
The playgroup also organises a summer outing each year. Parents or carers are encouraged to come along and join in the fun.
Bobtails is run on every weekday, from 9am to 12noon during term time.
Every first Friday of the month at 11am, all Bobtails children, parents and carers are welcome for a coffee morning at the playgroup.
