Our Parent and Toddler group is back!

We meet every Tuesday and Friday in term time, from 9:30am – 11:30am.

Come along and join us for some fun and activities.  Activities include themed toys, a creative table, a baby area, a book corner, a role play area and construction area, as well as time for fresh air outdoors. At the end of every session we all gather together to sing songs and nursery rhymes. Children receive milk or water, toast and fruit while parents share their experiences over tea or coffee and biscuits.  These mornings serve as an ideal introduction to the playgroup setting and help the children interact with other children, helping prepare them to progress to the older rooms.

  • Situated in the Old School Building in the Out Of School Club room.
  • Parents/carers welcome as well as grandparents and childminders.
  • Children welcome from 0-5 years.
  • £3.00 per family.

Support us through your local Co-op!

We’re delighted to have been selected to participate in the Co-op Local Community Fund. We’re aiming to raise funds to develop our outdoor area so it can become sheltered and suitable for use in all weathers.

We’re one of three causes that can be supported between now and October 2021. The more members that select us and shop with the Co-op, the more funds we’ll receive.

If you’re already a Co-op member, please choose us as your cause. If you’re not a member you can sign up for free at www.coop.co.uk/membership. Please remember to share this with your friends and family. Thanks for your support.

Join The Committee

Wilford Village Playgroup is a registered charity and relies on its volunteer committee to operate successfully.

Our committee is predominantly made up of parents and so places tend to come up when children progress through to primary school. We currently have 5 committee members but have space for an additional 2 volunteers. If you are available to offer support including participating in committee meetings and fundraising activities, we’d love to hear from you.

Please email info@wilfordvillageplaygroup or complete the contact form.
