About Us.

Thank you for your interest in Pickering Pre-school Playgroup.  We are a small, friendly group situated in the portable cabin on the site of Pickering Community Infant and Nursery School, on Ruffa Lane, Pickering.  We are highly thought of in the area and are often recommended to people for the care and activities we provide for children.

We know that your priority is to find a Pre-school Playgroup which offers the right setting for your child, and one that understands the importance of earning the trust and confidence of you, a parent.  We devote our energies to creating a fun and loving environment, whilst promoting the best in childcare and education.  Our goal is to create a positive and motivating experience that will, in turn, play a major role in your child’s future learning and development.

Our friendly, highly trained staff are focused on providing fun and education.  They will work with you to ensure that your child develops as an individual, whilst helping to nurture and encourage learning through discovery and enjoyment.   Not only do we offer education through creativity and play, but pride ourselves in understanding the importance of instilling confidence and enthusiasm from an early age.  We want the children to feel secure and happy from the start, so that they can’t wait to come back tomorrow!

We use the Tapestry Online Learning Journal to record and monitor children's development in line with "Development Matters"; the Early Years curriculum.

We are currently taking part in a pilot project "Grow and Learn" around a child's Speech, Language and Communication skills being ready for school. 

Due to COVID-19 restrictions we are unable to admit parents / carers into the setting at present. We have created a short video looking around the setting. The video is on our Facebook page.
