All of our classes are led by qualified early years teachers who are passionate about supporting children to explore their interests and unfold learning experiences.

Playgroups

Offering a variety of holistic play-based activities appropriate for nursery and kindergarten aged children, our Raintree Playgroup provides an opportunity for parents and children to become familiar with and understand our approach. As the parents also get to know the staff through the Playgroup, this also ensures a much smoother transition when the time comes for the children to wave goodbye to Mummy and Daddy for the start of the school day. Organised by our experienced team, the Playgroup includes activities aimed at engaging children in exploratory play within our safe and inspiring facilities.  During the Playgroup, the children develop their independence and make new friends as they play, sing, dance, paint and share together.
