"Limes ABC Playgroup strives to support children to learn, develop and play through a caring, encouraging, nurturing Christian environment"

We are a small friendly playgroup, and welcome all children aged 2 to 5 years.

We can accept up to 23 children in a session, consisting of a maximum of 8 under three year olds.  Smaller group sizes enables us to get to know the children well, scaffold their learning and build their confidence. 

The majority of paid staff are committed Christians and attend Limes Avenue Baptist Church. We all have many positive ideas and valuable contributions to bring to playgroup and we work very effectively together. Our staff regularly attend training courses and Early Years meetings.
