Welcome to Comberton Playgroup

Set in the heart of Comberton, just six miles from the centre of Cambridge, our Playgroup has been caring for children from the local community for the past 50 years.

We are now allocating places for September 2020. If you are considering a place at Comberton Playgroup, please get in touch as soon as possible to arrange a visit. 

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.

We are pleased to confirm we received an Ofsted rating of ‘Good’ for our quality and standards of the early years provision. Please click here to view our Ofsted Report

Please be advised that Comberton Playgroup currently offers the Government funded 30 hours across all main sessions (this excludes lunch and early starters).

Wrap around care:
Should you require additional hours to what we offer, please do get in touch, as we have a list of local childminders including one in the setting.

Learning through play

Comberton PlaygroupPlay is serious work for children, not an alternative activity.

At Comberton Playgroup, we believe that play is necessary and important for enabling children to:

  • Gain knowledge, skills, concepts and attitudes in a meaningful context.
  • Make informed choices becoming confident independent learners.
  • Work at their own pace in a non-competitive environment.
  • Achieve success and acknowledge failure as part of the learning process.
  • Learn to express and deal with their emotions behaving appropriately.
  • Begin to shape attitudes and make sense of the world.
  • Gain confidence, self esteem and develop a sense of personal identity.
