Welcome to Naunton Park Pre-School Playgroup! We are a non-profit, community playgroup overseen by a committee of volunteers.
The playgroup has been operating within Naunton Park Primary School since 1984. We provide high-quality Early Years Foundation Stage (EYFS) education and a welcoming, creative environment. Although independent of the primary school, we benefit from extremely close links, which help our children with their transition to school.
Watch our video to find out more about the playgroup and how the children spend their time:
We are open Monday to Friday, term time only. We run two separate sets of sessions for different age groups:
Pre-school sessions: Tuesdays, Thursdays and Fridays from 9am to 3.30pm. These are for children who will have their 4th birthday in that school year.
Pre-pre-school sessions: Mondays and Wednesdays from 9am to 3pm. These are for children aged from 2 years and 9 months (although younger children may be offered places depending on demand, so please get in touch).
Both include a one-hour lunch club from 12noon to 1pm. Children must provide their own lunch and there is an additional charge for this hour.
Those attending Pre-pre school sessions will be the first to be offered spaces in Pre-school.
Please get in touch for enrolment enquiries.
The playgroup has a dedicated building within the school grounds, which consists of a general playroom, separate art & craft area, kitchenette and cloakroom. Outside, the playgroup has its own garden and a large section of playground. We have a generous store of age-appropriate bikes, trikes etc and other outdoor toys.
