Childcare

Give your two year old a head start in life
 
 
 
Research has shown that good quality early years' care can:

• Improve children's development - for example their speech;
• Help children learn to play and share with other children and make friends; and
• Give children access to new activities and exciting places to play - for example they will do painting and play with sand and water and other activities that parents might not have the opportunity to provide at home.


Northumberland Playgroups operate during term time and offer you and your child quality childcare.
Leave your child with our fully qualified Playgroup staff and help get them ready for school. Children learn through play, are introduced to routines, make new friends and most of all have FUN! 
Sessions are for children aged from 2-3 years. 

£12.00 per session, or free depending on income and benefits criteria (see FREE CHILDCARE below).
