Butterflies is an Ofsted registered pre-school playgroup offering care and education for children from the age of two years.  Read our latest Ofsted report which judged the setting to be outstanding in all areas.

Our playgroup is open five mornings a week from 9am - 12noon and three afternoons a week from 12noon - 3pm (Mondays, Wednesdays and Thursdays) at a cost of £15.75 per session. We also offer three extended sessions from 3pm-6pm (Mondays, Wednesdays and Thursdays). Two & 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.
