Beavers Lodge Playgroup

Support offered for children with special educational needs and disabilities

Rated "Outstanding" by Ofsted November 2018.

At Beavers Lodge Playgroup provide high quality care and education for children below statutory school age.

We work in partnership with parents to help children to learn and develop.

Here the child starts a journey of learning and discovery through a variety of activities, all designed to meet the child's own specific needs and abilities.

The playgroup adds to the life and well being of the local community and offers children and their parents a service that promotes equality, values and diversity.

Prospective parents are welcome to visit on Fridays from 1pm to 3pm to view the playgroup, meet the staff and ask any questions
