About Play People

Play People is a well-established playgroup that has been running for 30 years. We are a non-profit making, committee-run playgroup for children aged from 2 to 5 years of age. We provide a differentiated learning environment for children from many different backgrounds, including children with an additional need or concern, which prepares them for entry to Primary School Education.

At Play People we aim to offer every child a safe, secure and stimulating environment in which they are free to explore and experiment on a multi-sensory level. Learning through play has always been the ethos of Play People. We believe that children learn best through the provision of high quality play opportunities that enable them to make choices and become deeply involved in their learning.

Our play environment is carefully planned using guidance from the Early Years Foundation Stage (EYFS). The activities, resources and equipment are age/stage appropriate and available at different skill and conceptual levels to offer children a challenge. The children are able to contribute to their own learning and are free to choose from:

  • Planned Activity Tables
  • Construction
  • Discovery and Investigation
  • Water and Sand Trays
  • Imaginative Play and Role Play
  • Book Corner
  • Paint/Chalk/Whiteboard Easels¬†

Play People is able to accommodate up to 25 children per session and we have a ratio of 1 adult to 4 children.

We accept Workplace Childcare Vouchers.
