Layham Playgroup CIO has received a new GOOD OFSTED !

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.

Spring 2019


The birds have been visiting to eat the food we have put out for them.  We are also very excited as some birds have shown an interest in our new birdboxes in the playgroup garden.






We celebrated Chinese New Year with music, dance, crafts, as well as noodles and prawn crackers for snack time.  We also turned our role-play area into a Chinese restaurant.


We are now thinking about our favourite books and stories, as we celebrate World Book Day.

We are also starting to see signs of spring in our playgroup garden!
