Penhill Playgroup is OFSTED inspected and a Registered Provider under the West Sussex County Council Early Childhood Service for Free Entitlement (Early Years Provision) for 2, 3 and 4 year olds. We can accommodate up to 30 children per session aged between two and a half and five years old.The children are cared for by qualified staff with a ratio of one staff member to eight children for 3 and 4 year olds and one staff member to four children for 2 year olds.
At Penhill Playgroup, we aim to make pre-school fun and to equip the children with the necessary skills of caring and sharing, learned through interaction with other children.
A wide range of activities are offered to satisfy curious minds, including painting, water play, glueing, playdough, chalking, crayoning, sand pit, role-play, and many creative projects. We aim to encourage children to explore and learn through play and direction using equipment provided. There is a home corner to give children an opportunity for imaginative play and children are encouraged to use the book corner. There is time set aside daily for songs, rhymes and stories and on most fine days the children spend time outside with a variety of tricycles and wheeled toys, to develop gross motor skills.
