Little Ark Playgroup
Little Ark Playgroup is open on Mondays, Tuesdays and Wednesdays between 9.45am and 11.40am. We provide an early opportunity for children aged 2-4 years to play and learn in a safe and happy environment without their parents. The playgroup leader has a level 3 qualification (NNEB) and is assisted by a dedicated team of volunteers. We maintain a ratio of 1 adult to 4 children.

For babies and toddlers up to the age of 2-3. The group meet in the room at the back of church, so parents can always be called if required. Babies and children play in a safe and warm environment with a high ratio of helpers to children. Biscuits and drinks are included as appropriate to the child’s age. Children move onto the next stage when they are potty trained and ready for more stimulating activities.
For toddlers from the age of 2-3 until 4 years of age, the group is based around active play with plenty of toys to choose from. A short bible story is included as well as drink and biscuit
The group of older preschool children and those in reception class meets for play, craft activities, singing and dancing as well as a short bible story. Older children enjoy the slightly more structured environment, although the emphasis is always on fun and enjoyment
