Congratulations to all the staff, trustees and children at Layham Playgroup CIO.  The report published  on 21st March 2018 gives a glowing report that really reflects the core principles and values of the Playgroup. ‘A Community playgroup ‘ Staff have a really close relationships with the children , clear monitoring of the children progress through learning journals and a focus on fostering independence and outdoor play.  At this time of year staff are beginning to get the school age children ready for more of a structured day at school - so letter recognition,  numbers and sharing games are all part of every day fun learning.

With some minor improvements and changes to make Layham Playgroup CIO is going from strength to strength. Well done Michelle, Liz and their wonderful team.

Summer 2019


We have been very busy in our playgroup garden planting seeds and bulbs, we are very excited, as they are now starting to grow…







We also held a session at the park, looking for bugs, before making our own out of pinecones.

We are now waiting for our caterpillars to arrive, so we can watch them grow and turn into butterflies.
