Your local Outstanding registered playgroup offering fully flexible childcare.
Bengeo Playgroup aims to provide an interesting, stimulating and safe environment where children are happy to express their creativity, enjoy positive respectful relationships, grow in self-confidence and delight in the joy of learning.
Bengeo Playgroup started in 1991.
Over the years we have adapted and extended our hours in response to increasing demand for childcare in the area.
We like to think that Bengeo Playgroup is a home from home. Each child is allocated a Key Person who will bond with your child and plan interesting and educational activities. Our staff have over 40 years of Childcare experience between them.
Each year we add to our large range of resources to ensure that we offer a wealth of fun activities to entertain the children. We have a covered courtyard and a large enclosed Playground which enables us to offer free flow play whatever the weather.
Our hours match those of the Schools, making it ideal for fathers/mothers/carers who have older children at Bengeo Primary School. Your child can join Bengeo Playgroup the September after they turn 2 years old For example Born 1 Sept 2019 – 31 Aug 2020: start September 2022 and progress to Nursery and School up to their final year at aged 11 (subject to availability). We hold a transition meeting with the Nursery Teacher each year for a hand over and children regularly visit the Nursery and their staff to ensure a smooth transition into Nursery, with the friends they have made at Playgroup.
“The quality of teaching is superb. Children make excellent progress in their learning. Assessments are exceptionally robust and accurate.”
