The Ashwell Playgroup is for children of Ashwell in Hertfordshire and the surrounding villages, aged 2 years old to 4 years old. We offer pre-school education through a variety of different “in the moment” play opportunities whilst developing children’s skills in preparation for the transition to local Nursery Schools. Our sessions run for a maximum of 20 children and, due to current high demand, it is currently running every weekday.

Our Values

Staff are sensitive to the individual care needs of each child. They use plenty of praise to raise their self-esteem and help them feel safe and secure within the playgroup.
