Woodlands Playgroup is open term time only.

  Lunch Club

You are asked to provide your child with a healthy packet lunch; we operate a no nut policy. 


We offer a wraparound service with Yarm Primary School Nursery.  We pick up or take your child to their nursery session; they spend the remaining part of the day with ourselves.


We offer government funded childcare places for both 2 years old (15 hours) and 3-4 year old (15/30 hours). 30 hours can be split between playgroup and another school/setting

Speak to us about term dates to qualify for the funding when you visit.

Key Person

Your child will be assigned a key person when they begin attending Woodlands Playgroup.  The key person’s role is to help ensure your child’s care is tailored to meet their individual needs.  This will help your child to become familiar with the setting, offer a settled relationship for your child and build a relationship with you their parent/carer.


We use the secure on-line learning journal Tapestry to record your child's development. Staff create observations for you to view to see how your child is developing and the exciting things they are doing whilst in our care. It also gives you the opportunity to tell us about 'wow' moments that they have at home or comment on what we are doing at playgroup.
