We are a parent run group providing playgroup sessions every week day for children from the age of 2 years and up to and including the age of four.
Information on our latest Ofsted report is available here: Ofsted Report
Our mission is to work in partnership with families and the community to provide a safe, friendly and nurturing environment for children from all backgrounds and ethnicities to learn and develop through play.
In 2014 we received the prestigious Leading Aspect Award for our Key Person initiative.
Playgroup takes place in our purpose-adapted building within Hinksey Park, behind Hinksey Open Air Swimming Pool.
From September 2017 Playgroup will be running 10 sessions a week, plus an additional breakfast hour 8.30 – 9.30:
Mornings 9.30 – 12.00
Afternoons 12.00 – 2.30 (this session covers lunch and children will need to bring a packed lunch)
From September 2017 fees are £14.00 per session. (An additional fee for breakfast club will be announced shortly.) Fees are reviewed annually and agreed at the Playgroup Annual General Meeting.
From the term after a childs 3rd birthday, all children are entitled to 15hrs a week (which is 6 sessions) paid for by the Nursery Education Grant. Fees will be charged for hours over the 15. We also accept children with two year old entitlement funding and, from September 2017 will be able to accept children on the new 30 hour entititlement.
Parents considering enrolling their child are welcome to come and look around between 10:00 and 10:30. Please call our Administrator to arrange a visit.
