Naunton Park Pre-school Playgroup is a non-profit making, community playgroup overseen by a committee of volunteers. It is a registered charity and has been operating within Naunton Park Primary School since 1984. It is independent of the school but benefits from extremely close links. The familiarity of the buildings and participation in key events in the calendar year (i.e. Harvest Festival, School plays, etc.) provide a valuable introduction to the school. Playgroup follows the same term calendar as the school.
The playgroup has a dedicated area within the school which consists of a general playroom, separate Art and Craft area, kitchen and cloakroom. Outside the playgroup has its own garden and a large section of playground. A recent purchase of an outdoor shelter has given the playgroup more opportunities for outside play. The playground has a generous store of age appropriate wheeled toys.
The playgroup runs two separate sets of sessions for the two different age groups. Both include a one-hour lunch club from 12noon to 1pm. (Children provide their own lunch and there is an additional charge for this hour.)
- Pre-school sessions – for children who will have their 4th birthday in that school year. These run on Tuesdays, Thursdays and Fridays from 9am to 3.30pm.
- Pre-pre-school sessions – for children aged from 2 years and 9 months (although younger children may be offered places depending on demand). These run on Mondays and Wednesdays from 9am to 3pm.
The playgroup is very active with fundraising events - the success of the playgroup is dependent on continual support from parents, both in helping run activities and supporting fundraising events.
