About Us

Welcome to East Leake Pre School Playgroup!

We are a committee run charity based in the Old School building next to Brookside Primary School. We have two rooms with the children aged 2 to 3 in the Playful Penguins and those aged 3 to 5 in the Fabulous Flamingos. We can offer 35 places per session across the two rooms. Our outdoor play area is used daily and offers a large variety of outside resources and fun. 

We are open Nottinghamshire term-time only and can offer a mix of morning, afternoon and full-day sessions between 8.50am and 3.30pm.

We receive Nursery Education Funding for eligible 2 year olds and all 3 and 4 year olds with the option of additional funding up to 30 hours funding for those who are eligible.

Children and their families have the option, once their child turns three, to use wrap around care with the Active Minds Before and After School Club which operates from the same building. They offer care from 7.30-8.50am and 3.30-6.00pm either side of the playgroups opening hours.

The children that attend playgroup primarily come from East Leake and the surrounding villages. We welcome children from all cultural backgrounds and offer additional levels of support to children with special educational needs or disabilities

Playgroup is a charity run by a fantastic committee of parent volunteers. Without these volunteers playgroup legally cannot operate.

As children move up to school parents naturally move on so it is imperative that we have new volunteers to replace them.

If you would be willing to help in any way please contact the office in the first instance.
