We are a not-for-profit charity and rely on the generosity of our parents and the community to help us. We run regular fundraising events throughout the year, and all money raised goes towards improving the facilities and provision we offer. We also hold meetings and celebration events that parents are warmly welcomed to join.

All help is much appreciated, fixing and painting equipment as well as fundraising!

Our regular and recent events include:

Weekly Events

Messy Play group

Messy Play is a group for younger children and their parents or carers, that takes place at the playgroup every week on Monday and Thursday mornings during term time, 9.30 to 11am. Children participate in a range of messy play, including painting, water play, playdough, gloop and much more.

Children can join the group from age 3 months.

Summer Holiday Stay and Play

During the summer holidays, playgroup opens one morning a week for children and their parents or carers to “stay and play”. Indoor and outdoor activities are available, as well as refreshments. The mornings are informal and parents or carers will need to stay and supervise their children. These are really sociable mornings and a great way to stay in touch with us over the summer holidays.

Meridian Primary School Visits 

We have excellent links with Meridian Primary School, and during summer term we arrange for the reception class teacher to visit playgroup and get to know the preschool children (age 3 – 4) who will be attending Meridian the following September. We also take the children for visits to the school. We rely on parents and volunteers to help us on these walks.

We also take all the preschool children to watch the school sports morning, when possible, and enjoy running our own 50 m sprint race at the end!

End of term BBQ

We finish the term with an after school BBQ, including refreshments and a raffle, to celebrate a year completed and wish all our preschool children good luck for starting school in September.

End of term BBQ, summer 2019
