About Us

The prime motivation for children’s early learning is their own joy in life and the pleasure they gain from the experiences offered to them. Childhood is a unique and precious time to be experienced and valued, not just a preparation for life.

Heather Playgroup was established in 1978 and we are set in the grounds of North Heath Community Primary School. Our sessions run term time mornings with various lunch club and afternoon sessions. We are Ofsted registered. We are a registered charity and a committee run playgroup, which relies on parent involvement. We hold regular fund raising events.

At Heather we aim to provide a safe, happy, anti-discriminatory and stimulating environment, so that each child can enjoy learning and  developing at their own pace and to their full potential.

We aim to offer activities built around children’s individual needs and interests, indoors and out, so that they can become involved and wonder at the world around them and have the confidence to learn and ask questions.
