I can not speak highly enough of Helen and the team. My second child is now attending and absolutely loves it. His social skills and confidence have improved massively in a short space of time…
My son loves coming to playgroup. He is always really excited about what he has done and so I think it is a great place to start exploring new things.
As parents we are very pleased with the variety of activities provided by Chewton Common Playgroup
My son loves it. The staff are lovely and I feel completely confident leaving him there.
Amazing enthusiasm and drive, driven by an exceptional leader.
Our daughter has really blossomed in confidence since first starting… Thank you for the lovely welcome she always receives.
Excellent outside area.
A fantastic environment for a child to take their first steps towards education.
All staff are so welcoming and always so positive.
The staff are fantastic and so creative.
Great home/playgroup links

As always, this is a very busy term with lots of exciting learning opportunities for your children as well as excited parents waiting for the next step in their childs education-going to school. I CAN NOT STRESS ENOUGH THAT NO MATTER HOW READY YOU THINK YOUR CHILD IS FOR SCHOOL THE EARLIER YOU START TALKING ABOUT IT THE MORE STRESSED YOUR CHILD WILL GET. YOUR CHILD WILL NOT BE GOING TO SCHOOL FOR ANOTHER 5 MONTHS. PLEASE WAIT AND SHARE YOUR EXCITEMENT WHEN WE START TALKING ABOUT SCHOOL AND ARRANGING TRANSITION ACTIVITIES. We will let you know.
We are continuing with our Pollination project and will continue planting on the tarmac area.
Our phonic project is ongoing and have received some positive feedback from some parents, so that’s great.
We have increased our sessions with Rippa Rugby, so hopefully a few more children will experience it this term.
I would also like to congratulate Jade on her pregnancy. Her baby is due in the Summer holidays and she will be working up to the Summer break.
WE WILL ALSO BE HOLDING KEYWORKER MEETING TO DISCUSS TRANSITION IN THE SECOND HALF OF THE TERM
More activities will be added as we organise them - please keep looking.
Why not take a paper plate and see if your child can turn it into a chicken?
Please bring it in to show us.

Uniform at Chewton Common Playgroup is optional, however children do get very mucky and when we go out a uniform is a great way of being recognised!
