The playgroup sessions involve a wide variety of activities that have been carefully planned to be fun, stimulating and a great learning experience, often using the beautiful outside space that surrounds the building. There is always lots of opportunity for ‘free play’ and the children are fully involved in the choice of activities and equipment on offer each day. A particular feature of Amberley playgroup is the music and singing! Each session ends with 20 mintues of ‘music and movement’ accompanied by a member of staff on the piano, and the children also perform a wonderful ‘show’ at the end of each term. This provides the children with a unique confidence boosting experience, that gives great joy and many happy memories to parents and grandparents!!
