  Eastington Playgroup

Our focus for the final term we have been looking at the world around us and preparing the leavers for their transitions into their new schools in September.

We have looked at holidays, different countries and our experiences, camping, flying, caravans and holiday homes.

We have also had our own mini Olympics where the children have joined in with running races, egg and spoon, team races and different ways of moving our bodies with a medal for each of the children.

For our final week we had fun making some cakes and sandwiches to eat at our party on the final day before we broke up for the summer holidays.

We held our AGM at the Kings Head and had a brilliant turnout with some lovely food.  We welcome our new committee and parent volunteers and look forward to working with them in the next academic year, which is sure to be as busy and exciting as this one.

In July we also said goodbye and good luck to our older children who are now ready for their next big adventure at primary school – we wish them all well and would like to say a big thank you to all our parents who have supported the Playgroup during their children’s time with us.

We look forward to another new term in September and welcome back our remaining and also all of our new  children – we have lots of exciting things planned for our return.


 Playgroup’s first day back will be Tuesday 6th September 2016

                                                             – we will see you all then!  

Our playgroup offers care and education for all children in a well-established community based group.

       We offer your children a safe and stimulating environment in which they can grow and blossom into

self confident, self-reliant and positive little people.

Our ultimate goal is to enable the children to have fun, explore and have the freedom

to express their individuality, while forming the basis of their education.

  We accept children from the age of 2yrs 6month to 5 years and operate 4 days a week

(Monday – Thursday) offering full and half day sessions.

We accept government nursery vouchers and other types of employer supported childcare vouchers.

           If you would like to have a look around our fantastic facilities and have an informal chat please call one of the staff on   07977 342 742 or email

We have been making pizzas to talk about and explore changes observed in the ingredients.  We have made presents and cards for Father’s day and have been practising writing our names either with support or independently.

Our allotment has been busy growing with all the rain and intermittent sunshine and the children have been learning about growth, decay and some unfortunate slug damage!
