Welcome to the Croft Playgroup website

Croft Playgroup is a charity led organisation, jointly managed by a committee and was founded in 1972. We offer full and part-time placements for children aged between 3 and 5 years old. We have two rooms, Oak and Willow, which both open out onto a wonderful outside space in the Old Town area of Swindon, SN1.

We are proud to run a caring setting in which the children are happy, content and benefit from our stimulating facilities and well-qualified team. Our priority is to ensure the happiness and safety of each child and to promote their learning and development.

We follow the Early Years Foundation Stage Curriculum and provide a strong play-led ethos, to ensure that every child has access to a wide range of experiences to meet their individual needs. Supporting the children in our care and enabling them to express themselves and learn through play is at the heart of what we do and believe in.

We also believe in working closely with parents and carers to achieve the best possible outcome for the children in our care. We want to create a welcoming and inclusive environment at Croft Playgroup in which all children feel valued and safe.

If you would like to come and visit us or to talk to us to find out more about our Playgroup please feel free to contact us.
