News and Information
We have been very busy at the Playgroup over the last half term. The Children have been busy planting for Mothering Sunday, Supporting Red Nose Day and cleaning their outside garden space in time for the Summer Term. Prior to the Easter Holidays we held our Easter Fayre, where the children sang a collection of songs with a surprise visit from Peppa Pig, who gave each of them an Easter Egg for singing so beautifully (It always brings a tear to your eye watching their faces light up as Peppa enters the room).
Our Committee held a cheese and wine tasting event with quiz at the hall, selling over 100 tickets. A fun evening was had by all and a staggering £800 was raised for the playgroup. Thank you to everyone who purchased tickets and supported the event and a big thank you to Uncle Dai for arranging the quiz. Thanks must go to Vicky, Lisa, Michelle and Rachel from our Committee who gave up their time to put on the event. Well done, an excellent return for playgroup ladies.
WHO ARE WE?
Wenvoe Playgroup is a registered charity which has been in operation for 48 years at the Village Hall. Parents of children who attend the playgroup are elected each year at the AGM to form a committee. We Co-opt members of the community who have previously served on the Playgroup Committee to support a smoother operation. The Committee employ Sandra Morgan along with her registration with CSSIW to run and operate the playgroup. Sandra holds a level 5 qualification in Early Years and Management.
The playgroup employs an additional 5 staff, 3 of whom hold a level 3 Early Years qualification, 1 staff with 20 years’ experience and 1 staff, who works part-time to support the wrap around care. We offer care for children from the age of 2 years and 4 months up to the age of 4 years and 11months. Our staff offer a safe, caring and stimulating environment where the children may learn through play.
The playgroup operates from the Village Hall Monday to Friday from 9am until 12:45pm offering extended hours on Monday and Wednesday until 3:15pm.
At this time we operate ‘Wrap around Care’ with Gwenfo Nursery each morning, taking the children across to the nursery for 1pm. This allows working parents daily care for their children from 9am until 3.30pm. For those children who attend morning nursery we offer collection from the nursery and on into playgroup on Monday and Wednesday, collecting children 11:20am and on into Playgroup until 3:15pm.
