Welcome

REOPENING SEPTEMBER 2021

Hello and thanks for looking at our website.  This may be your first visit here and if so you will not be aware that we have been unable to operate since the beginning of the pandemic.  For those of you who may be new to the area or may not be aware of our service, Swillington Pre-School Playgroup and Stay & Play is a non-profit, Charity-run organisation dedicated to providing a safe and caring environment for pre-school children to play, make friends and explore new surroundings. 

We will be open for Stay n Play only from 13th Sept-29th Sept 2021, Monday to Wednesday, 8.45am-10.45am for £3.50 a child.

Our usual sessions, prior to the pandemic, were held for two hours on Monday and Tuesday mornings operating in the Community Room in Swillington Primary School.  Playgroup is essentially for children from two years old to school age to give them an opportunity to explore and play without the presence of their usual carer.  Stay and Play is held in the same sessions and aimed at birth up to two years old and is an opportunity for new parents/carers to bring their little ones along, providing a chance to meet and talk with people in the same position as themselves.  These sessions are also an ideal time for the little ones to become accustomed to the setting in preparation for registering for Playgroup.

We have recently been in discussions with members of staff at the Primary School and it has been agreed that the Playgroup could re-open at the beginning of the new academic year in September.  This of course is brilliant news for us, as this will enable us to provide the much needed facility that some families have missed during the past 15 months. 

To enable us to re-open, we do of course need to ensure we have sufficient little ones on our register and it is also essential that we have interest from carers/family members in joining the Committee.  In the first instance, we should be very grateful to hear from any person who would like to register their child either for Playgroup or would be interested in attending the Stay and Play sessions. We would love to hear your comments also on whether you would be willing to join our Committee to help revive this much needed group.  If you require further information, please take a look at our Facebook Page and leave a comment – just search for Swillington Pre-School Playgroup or drop a note on an email.
