Spring Willows Playgroup

We are a small setting catering for children from 2 years to 4 years. Many of our staff have experience of working with children with individual needs, from language and social difficulties to children with complex needs. We have a quiet/sensory room where children can have some quiet time in a cozy and welcoming environment; exploring a variety of sensory experiences such as fibre optic lights.

What we do

We have an extended and fully enclosed outdoor play area which is not overlooked by other premises. We also have access to lovely extended gardens to the rear where we grow apple and pear trees and a vegetable patch where our children can help and watch our own fruit and vegetables grow. We encourage a healthy lifestyle and diet and hold a Gold Certificate for the Golden Grin Award.

Our Deputy Manager Maxine, has now completed her Early Years Foundation Degree and is now working as a "Graduate Leader" in our setting. Maxine continues to work towards her Early Years Teacher Status.
