Welcome to Long Preston Playgroup and Out of School Care.


Our playgroup and out of school care is situated in purpose-built facilities adjoining Long Preston Endowed School, School Lane, Long Preston.   It is a friendly, welcoming playgroup with places available for children from the age of 2 years old.

We offer a breakfast club starting at 8.00am every day and an after school club till 5.00pm on a Wednesday and Friday, this is for children who attend the school aswell as our playgroup children.

We currently have seven members of staff: Stacy(leader & SENCO), Lyndsey and Sarah(Deputy leaders), Katie(Health and safety officer), Jo and Jessika all of whom are qualified to minimum of NVQ Level 3 in Child Care. Lottie also covers in our out of school club.

Our aim is to provide excellent early years provision with a great out of school care within a fantastic setting where all children are equal.

We are managed by a committee of parents; this ensures our children are at the forefront of our thoughts and plans at all times. We are not a profit-driven organisation; any profits made are re-invested into our playgroup to enhance our childrens’ development.


With close links to the school and the integration of some of the reception class during the sessions, children have a seamless link into Long Preston Endowed School and are well prepared for school when the time comes!

Our latest Ofsted inspection in July 2018 graded us as ‘Outstanding’ throughout. Have a look at it in full at here.
