A playgroup for under-fives in North Oxford 

Welcome to St Peter’s Playgroup

Our mission is to form strong, supportive partnerships with families and the local community, to provide an affordable, inclusive and nurturing environment for children aged 2–5 years from all backgrounds to learn and develop through play.

St Peter’s Playgroup is a small, nurturing setting, employing qualified pre-school practitioners. 
The playgroup is Ofsted registered and the experienced staff team are dedicated to meeting all the requirements of the revised Early Years Foundation Stage programme for pre-school children. 
We are run by a voluntary committee, made up of parents and members of the local community.

We run our sessions from 9am to 12 noon, five days a week during term time. Children are required to attend a minimum of 2 sessions per week. Children age 3 are entitled to 15 hours of nursery education paid for by the Nursery Education Grant from the school term after their 3rd birthday. This would cover a full-time place at St Peter’s Playgroup.

If you are considering enrolling your child, and would like to arrange a visit please contact us.

If you would like to apply for a place at St Peters Playgroup, please see the information section.
