The Playgroup is for children from 2 years to nursery age. It runs 3 mornings a week on Mondays, Wednesdays and Thursdays from 9.15am to 12.15am. We offer either 2 or 3 sessions per week. At playgroup we are committed to providing children with a safe and happy environment where they have fun, develop their social skills and benefit from a wide range of educational experiences. A morning session costs £12 and lunch is available on Wednesdays and Thursdays according to demand at £3.50.
We follow the Early Years Foundation Stage. We believe children learn best when they are involved in hands on play in a rich and stimulating environment. At playgroup we provide a more structured environment for the children with a routine they soon settle into:
9.15 am - 11.30 am
During the morning the children can access a variety of activities in the larger hall and secure, safe outdoor area which include a selection from the following:
Creative and sensory play, construction toys, sand and water play, active play, role play and adult led activities. From about 10.30am a healthy snack and drink is offered which the children come and have when they feel ready.
11.45 - 12.15
After tidying up, the children join together for group time which includes stories, singing, circle time, music and movement sessions. Tim Blake, the Children and Families Minister at St. Andrew’s Church Histon, regularly comes to share Bible stories and Christian songs with the children.
