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.

As we start a new year at Layham Playgroup we are keen to explore all the changes that have occurred to our garden over the summer holidays.  Many thanks to Imogen who has planned and helped to redesign the garden area.






Many thanks also to Steve and Tanith from The Queens Head, who have provided the new uniforms for the staff, they look really smart and ready for a new year!


We are looking forward to hearing all the news from the summer and getting to know the new children.

We wish those starting school and nursery well in their next stages of their education, please do let us know how you are all getting on, we love to hear all your news.
