Medbourne Playgroup was established as a preschool in 1982 and registered as a charity in 1994. It has always been a community lead preschool with strong links to the local primary schools and the surrounding area. We aim to work with parents, families and carers to provide an informal, happy and safe environment in which children make friends, have fun and develop their individual potential. We follow the Early Years Education framework but our emphasis has always been on 'learning through play'. We have been told many times how happy the atmosphere is and how much the children enjoy coming.
