Britannia Fields Playgroup, Burbage, was established in 1994 to provide quality child care and education for children aged 2 to 5 years old. We pride ourselves on providing children with the opportunity to develop and learn through active learning through play and structured educational learning activities, encouraging their development in all areas of the Early Years Foundation Stage Framework.
The staff at Britannia Fields Playgroup enjoy working in partnership with parents to enhance children’s wellbeing and development. We hold ‘stay and play’ sessions, fun workshops, and special events for parents and families. We keep parents informed of our planned topics, and provide ideas to support learning at home. We have a great toy and resource library available to parents, including story sacks and den kits, providing fun activities to share at home. Staff hold regular meetings with parents to discuss their child’s progress, and are happy to discuss children’s individual development with parents at any time.
We are an allergy aware setting, and work closely with parents of children with allergies to ensure their child can safely take part in all playgroup activities including snack time, cooking, and food-based play.
We are OFSTED registered, graded as ‘good’ at our last inspection (2015).
We are open term time only, Monday to Friday 9am to 12 noon, with optional Lunch Club on Monday, Tuesday, Wednesday, Thursday and Friday until 12.45pm. Monday afternoon session from 12 to 2.30pm.
