Allendale Pre-school Playgroup was established in 1970, when we decided that our ultimate objective, and one that we have never wavered from, would be to:
Ã¢â¬ÅProvide childcare of the highest standards in a safe, homely and stimulating environment.Ã¢â¬Â
We are a registered charity and are managed by a voluntary Committee, supported by parents and friends. Pre-school is very much part of the community, with strong links to local first schools. Children are welcomed from two and a half years of age into a relaxed, safe environment with experienced staff who build confidence and engage in fun and stimulating activities both in the building and outside.
It is our aim to positively contribute towards your child's development; to help them achieve confidently and enjoyably; and to transition to school successfully.
We are open Monday - Friday during term time, except bank holidays. We encourage families to contact us about flexible and short notice sessions, for more information visit our fees and funding page.
Our session times are:
Morning: 09.00 - 11.45
Lunch: 11.45 - 12.45
Afternoon: 12.45 - 15.15
Naughty but nice Puddings!
Check out our delicious puddings, my favourite is the limoncello trifle, not suitable for the kids, but there are some other scrummy recipes that the whole family can enjoy! Take a look in our pudding section for recipes to make summer BBQ's and eating alfresco all the more tasty! My girls LOVE the chocolate pizza - making it, but mostly eating it!
Over the weekends and holidays there are always times when your children need some chill out time, or to fill an hour or so, or they say the dreaded 5 letter word - BORED! Well, our KidsZone is here to rescue you and them from these moments. Full of puzzles, colouring in sheets and activities from films and programmes there is lots to keep busy!
