Play Along Pre-School

Places available for key worker parents? YES

We are a Pre-school, situated in Millbrook Primary School. We open term time only to 3-4 year olds. Our opening hours from January will be 9.10-3.00, due to Covid restrictions and staggered start and finish times through school.

All our staff are experienced and passionate about their role, we do not have a large staff turnover, most of our staff have worked together for the past 20 years which provides consistency for the children and the families attending our setting.

We have had lots of experience over the years working with children with a wide range of varying levels of additional needs within the Autistic spectrum to physical needs.  We have always attended any relevant training when a child has been in need of attention ie epi-pen, tube feeding, mobility etc.  Due to Covid 19, we closed in March and reopened on the 15th June.  We have attached our current risk assessment, which outlines the measures we have put in place to keep our children, their parents and our staff safe.

 Due to Covid and following Government guidance our school is implementing staggered start times therefore Play Along opens at 9.10am, parents are met at the school gate and staff bring the children into school.  At home time staff take the children out to parents. All guidance for Infection Control is strictly followed, for further details please contact us.
