Butterflies is an Ofsted registered pre-school playgroup offering care and education for children from the age of two years.

Our playgroup is open five mornings a week from 9am - 12noon and five afternoons a week from 12noon - 3pm at a cost of £17 per session. Three year old funding is available through the local authority.

Butterflies aim is to provide a safe, caring and happy Christian environment where children can learn through play and develop as an individual, based on the seven areas of learning and development from the Early Years Foundation Stage (EYFS) set out by the Department of Education.

Please refer to the information booklet for further information.
