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
Now that we are in autumn everyone is looking for things to do with the kids to celebrate this lovely colourful season. Here we have some great ideas, and they don't all involve being cooped up indoors! Get out and enjoy the cooler, fresh air and the crunchy leaves under foot - you can always return home afterwards for a hot chocolate and a snuggle
Be safe this Bonfire Night
Be safe this Bonfire Night by making sure that you, pets and your family know and follow the very important Fireworks Code.
