Due to the current Coronavirus Pandemic, the Stay and Play toddler group sessions are no longer running. We hope to re-start them once it is safe to do so (updated 12/5/2020)


Penhill Playgroup runs a Stay and Play (parent, carer and toddler group) twice a week, on Tuesdays and Fridays, 12.30pm - 2.30pm, term time only, for a small charge. It provides an opportunity for mums/dads and carers to enjoy meeting others in a friendly and safe environment. Refreshments are provided for both adults and children and Playgroup staff are on hand to ensure the group runs smoothly. However, children are the responsibility of their parents and carers during these sessions.


Activities include playdough, books, small cars and garage, ride on toys, painting, puzzles, and some arts and crafts. These sessions also provide opportunities for the Playgroup to fundraise and regular cake sales and table sales of second hand clothes, books, toys etc. take place and are well supported.

We have found that children who have come to Stay and Play, settle into Playgroup well because they become familiar with the setting, staff and other children.
