Painswick Playgroup is situated in the heart of the Gloucestershire village of Painswick. We exist to provide a safe, stimulating environment for young children. We have a dedicated team of five members of staff, all mums themselves, who have worked closely together for many years to make our playgroup the happy place it is today.

We are a community playgroup, which means we not only provide care for pre-school aged children, we also exist for children’s parents and carers to meet and share experiences with other families within the community. We are run as a charity by a parent- and carer-led Committee.

A typical day at Playgroup sees the children playing with and taking part in a wide range of resources and activities that can easily be adapted to meet individual needs. There are regular breaks where snacks and drinks are provided, and there are opportunities to play in our garden daily (weather permitting!). We are also very lucky to have close links with The Croft Primary School, enabling us to use their playground and field.
