Spring Bedlington Playgroup is based within Bedlington Children’s Centre and also offers sessional term time only care, operting between the hours of 12.45pm – 15.45pm at £13.50 per session. Both playgroups offer a true ‘home from home’ feel. Our play environment is set up, taking into consideration all of the developmental areas of the EYFS, keeping an open planned and free – flow feel throughout. Out little inventors are able to explore problem solving opportunities, along with mark making, physical play (gross and fine motor), role/ imaginative play opportunities and they love to explore the loose parts, creating their own various art work. The children are also able to enjoy some quiet time if they are feeling like they need a rest or if they would like to snuggle up on a cosy cushion or with a teddy. The children also enjoy engaging with stories, songs and circle times, helping them develop into school ready children. The children are given various self – help opportunities where they are able to ‘prep snack’, toilet train and gain indepence from putting on their own coat and shoes. We offer 2 year old funding alongside the extended hours of the 30 hour provision in conjunction with Bedlingon Station Primary and Steadlane Primary Schools. The staff are well qualified, friendly and approachable with a keen interest in working with children and are passionate to promote the children’s wellbeing. We also have a PANCO trained member of staff on site to ensure that healthy eating is part of your child’s snack.
