Colwich Playgroup - “Giving your child a good start”


Colwich Playgroup

My Memory Book


Each child has their own memory book which keeps parents informed as to what their child does during their time at the setting.  It records their progress, highlights their achievements and shows photographs and scans of their activities and work.

About Us

Phone: 01889 883400



Our hours of opening are Monday to Friday 9.00 am to 3.15pm, term time.  We offer a range of sessions, including sessional and full day care.

Children are cared for and educated under the revised Early Years Foundation Stage framework, the Dfes standard for early education.  For more detailed information on this, please click the dedicated page EYFS Matters and view our Gallery.

New entrants are invited to visit our premises with or without appointments, and we can arrange free stay and play taster sessions.  We will work with you to achieve a settling in process which is right for you and your child. 

Each child and their family has their own keyworker who works closely alongside them, and is responsible for their monitoring, feedback and ongoing development during the year.

Meals And Snacks


The setting offers a wide choice of healthy snacks, including bread based items, fruit, vegetables and salad, cheese and fromage frais.  We supply milk and water to drink.  Water is available freely throughout the day or children may bring in their own named water bottles.  Snacktimes are 10.30am and 2.30pm, with lunch at midday.  Our lunch club is the opportunity for children to ’stay for lunch’ either by bringing in a packed lunch from home, or by ordering a hot lunch provided from the school kitchen for which there is a charge.



We are happy to attend to children wearing nappies or to assist with and follow your toileting routine.  Children are supervised and help will always be given.  Gaining independence and maintaining good hygiene is encouraged and children are reminded to ‘wash hands to get rid of germs’.
