Welcome to Long Preston Playgroup.


Our playgroup 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 currently have six members of staff: Natalie (leader, Safeguarding lead and Senco), Katie (Health and safety officer), Jo and Jessika all of whom are qualified to minimum of Level 3 in Child Care. 

Our aim is to provide excellent early years provision 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! We are very lucky to also have a member of our staff, Jessika who is also a teaching assistant and soon to be part time teacher In the reception class!

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


Feel free to pop in during a session or contact us to arrange a visit!
