Welcome to Caerwys Playgroup & Parent and Toddler Group
Caerwys playgroup has now been running for over 30 years. The group is run by parents on a voluntary basis and is steered by a busy and creative committee. The group is affiliated to the Wales Pre-School Playgroup Association who provide insurance, training courses and regular visits from our area organiser. Playgroup employs two staff members, Clair and Carolina both qualified and have experience within this field. Caerwys Playgroup runs closely with Caerwys School- Ysgol Yr Esgob.
PLAYGROUP – children from 2 years 6 months to 5 years
Clair and Carolina plan activities and encourage and support our children through them. It is an ideal setting to ensure that children learn to explore messy, creative, imaginative, manipulative and physical play as well as providing children with a chance to socialise and develop new skills and friends. Clair and Carolina look at different themes around the year.
PARENT & TODDLER GROUP – children from 0 to 2 years 6 months
In this group parents stay with their children. Newborn babies to toddlers enjoy the hive of activities. Each child busy discovering a new toy, a new face or even a new type of biscuit. Parents watch over their child and join in the fun, making new friends along the way. The structure of the group is quite loose and varies from free play, sing-songs to painting.
