For children over 3 years old the cost of  these sessions can be covered by the Nursery Funding provided by the Government, which entitles a child to up to 15 hours of Nursery Education. Children are eligible for this funding from the term after they have turned 3. (This is in accordance with the government guidelines). For children under three the charge is currently £4.00 per hour. Amberley Playgroup currently offer 21.25 hours. Some children may be eligible for additional funding. Please ask for further details.
The playgroup sessions involve a wide variety of activities that are carefully selected by following children’s interests in order to be fun, stimulating and offer great learning experiences. We are fortunate to be surrounded by beautiful outside space and have daily access to the park.

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 includes ‘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 them great joy and many happy memories for parents and grandparents!!
