Welcome to Comberton Playgroup

Playgroup website picture

Set in the heart of Comberton, our Ofsted-rated “Good” Playgroup has been caring for children aged 2 to 5 years from the local community for the past 50 years. We are open Monday – Friday from 8 am to 4 pm during school term time. We can offer the full Government funded 30 hours across our morning and afternoon sessions.

We will be reopening as usual on Thursday 3rd September (see our Covid-19 update) and have spaces available.  Please get in touch to find out more. Please note that due to current Covid-19 measures, we cannot currently allow parents into the building; however, we will be offering a ‘video walk around’ by appointment. Please phone or email to arrange an appointment, and we will be happy to show around via Zoom.

Wrap around and holiday care:
Should you require additional hours to what we offer, or holiday childcare, please do get in touch, as we work closely with a number of local childminders including one based at playgroup.


We were delighted to receive an Ofsted rating of ‘Good’ for our quality and standards of the early years provision, in our latest inspection in March 2019. Please click here to see our current and past inspection reports.

We use our outdoor areas as much as possible. In fine weather it is important that your children have named hats and sun cream, which we can apply. In poorer weather, welly boots, gloves or mittens, winter hats and a coat may be necessary. All named to avoid confusion, thank you.

Parents, carers and grandparents, could you volunteer at playgroup occasionally when needed, to help with walks and other activities? If so, please let us know.
