Our Mission is to empower all children to fulfil their potential by promoting confidence, independence and a strong sense of self

We are a committee run, charity funded playgroup set in the diverse grounds of Nailsworth Primary school. 

We offer childcare for children aged 2 - 5 years in our 2 dedicated rooms with their own fully enclosed gardens.

At Nailsworth playgroup, we have fantastic, highly skilled staff. We all have a very similar approach to childcare which has created a dedicated, nurturing, loving and passionate team. This is evident in the close relationships we build with the children and their families. All staff in the playgroup are in receipt of an enhanced DBS check, all are trained in safeguarding and hold a paediatric first aid qualification.

To ensure staff can keep every child safe and give them the care and support they need, we adhere to goverment guidelines on staff to child ratios.

  Playgroup Committee

We are a registered charity. This means that we are committee run. 60% of the committee has to be made up of parents who have children at playgroup. If we do not have a committee, unfortunately Nailsworth playgroup would not be able to run. 
We formally invite parents to join the committee in the Autumn term, however you can still join throughout the year. 
The committee consists of a core group which includes the Chairperson, Secretary, and the Treasurer. The remaining members form sub-groups, such as the fundraising group. 
The committee meet half termly.
