Our Mission Statement: “To give every child the opportunity to learn through guidance and self-discovery within a caring and safe environment”.

Buckingham Playgroup is a small, friendly charity-run playgroup which has been caring for children from the Adur area for over forty years. We have an excellent reputation within the local community, supported by complementary formal reports from Ofsted.

The secret of our success lies in providing a warm and sociable welcome for all children, parents/carers, and a fun approach to childcare, backed up by a professional attitude to the management and organisation of the Playgroup.

Our main focus is to ensure that children attending the playgroup have lots of fun, are safe and happy. They are free to choose from a wide variety of stimulating activities, toys and can play independently or join in with a group. The playgroup promotes a healthy lifestyle offering indoor and outdoor play throughout the morning, and a choice of physical pursuits. There are also a number of activities which the children take part in together, such as story time, song time and healthy snack time.

Whilst the children are playing, they are learning about the world around them. They are learning important social and personal skills, improving their communication skills and learning to apply themselves creatively, mentally and physically. Our staff give the children lots of encouragement and support to take their learning and development forward but this is done in a very informal way so that children can progress at their own pace.

Parents have always played a pivotal role at the playgroup and your involvement in relation to your own child, or on a wider basis is highly valued. We look forward to developing a close partnership with parents and carers and will work closely with you to help your child settle confidently into the playgroup.

Our setting aims to:

  • provide high quality care and education for children below statutory school age
  • work in partnership with parents to help children to learn and develop
  • add to the life and well-being of the local community
  • offer children and their parents a service that promotes equality and values diversity
  • We operate a no smoking policy on the premises.

We hope that you find this information useful. However, we understand that choosing the right playgroup for your child can be a difficult decision so please visit us as often as you need to and ask as many questions as you like.

We very much look forward to welcoming you and your child to Buckingham Playgroup!
