Marden Pre-School Playgroup is an established, term time only setting based in the heart of the village in Marden Memorial Hall since 1967. We cater for up to 45 children per session, aged from 2-5, serving both the local village and surrounding communities. Our Pre-School is an Un-incorporated charity steered by a strong Management Team and enthusiastic Trustees.
Facilities also offer regular use of the Primary School Playground as well as our own enclosed private garden. We have the use of child friendly accessible toilets, as well as our own bespoke children toilet and handwashing area. For children who are still in nappies we have a high-quality changing station and toilet training facilities. We benefit from the use of a fully equipped kitchen where we prepare healthy snacks.
Meeting the individual needs of all children in our care lies at the heart of Marden Pre-School Playgroups ethos, and we are therefore committed to providing high quality care and education for children. We ensure that we provide an environment that is safe, secure and welcoming. The children's learning and development is recorded, ensuring that the curriculum meets the needs of every child, socially, intellectually, emotionally and physically.
We are fully committed to work in partnership with parents to help children learn and develop.
We aim to nurture self confidence and self-esteem and encourage independence. We do this by providing a rich play environment that promotes children’s rights to explore, question and learn. Each child is given care and attention, is encouraged to participate and learn together.
