Here at St Christopher’s Playgroup, we work hard to ensure your child gets a great pre-school experience to prepare them for the next stage of their journey. Part of the local community for over 50 years, we are a registered charity run by a committee of parents. Based in the two church halls, our days are filled with play-based learning through arts, craft, construction, music, dance, and adventure. We also visit the church itself at special times such as Harvest Festival, Christmas, and Easter. When your child joins us, our dedicated and enthusiastic team will welcome them warmly and help them to settle. Their keyworker will regularly update you via our online Tapestry journal.

What Parents Say
From day one, the staff at St Christopher’s have made Charlie feel so welcome. He is naturally shy but was so warmly encouraged to join in with peers and has loved it from day one. Not only does he love the activities the team prepare for him, as a primary teacher, it’s really clear to see through the tapestry platform how the St Christopher’s staff equip the children with the foundation skills needed to start reception at school.
“We are so pleased with how quickly and easily our son settled in at St Christopher’s. It was a new world for us having come from a nursery setting but we really had nothing to worry about. The team do a fantastic job and we collect an incredibly happy boy at the end of each day. We will be sad to say goodbye!”
Our little boy is in his last year with St Christopher’s and we could not be happier that we have sent him here. He cannot wait to go each morning and because he loves it so much, we recently increased his hours, and he goes 5 days a week. The staff are wonderful; kind, caring and extremely supportive of him. We have never had to worry about him being there and it has helped him develop his confidence, social skills, speech, and early education massively. It is a joy to see him develop and we must say a massive thanks to the staff for helping him along the way with everything. We would absolutely recommend this playgroup!
