About Bardney Playgroup

Bardney Playgroup is set in a spacious self-contained building in the grounds of Bardney Primary School.  It offers inside and outside play areas.

At the time of writing we are temporarily running sessions from Bardney Gateway Centre while our landlord -Lincolnshire County Council- updates our usual premises.  We expect to return in September 2019 and are very much looking forward to updating parents with details of the new premises as soon as we know more.

We are a registered charity (our Charity Commission reference number is 1037048) run by a group of parents who are elected each year as a management committee.  All parents of children who attend the setting are welcome to join the committee; please contact us for more details.

Our staff team is led by Sam Sykes.  All staff receive regular training to make sure that we are making the most of opportunities for the children in our care.  We work alongside families to nurture children during this important time of life. 

We are OFSTED registered and rated as 'Outstanding' at out last inspection. We currently run for 38 weeks of the year but will be extending our hours once back in our own premises- please see the Extended Care page for more details.

We offer Local Authority Funded places for qualifying children under the 15 hours Early Years entitlement and 30 hours childcare scheme.  Parents wising to pay for additional sessions or extended hours can choose from a variety of payment methods for your convenience; we encourage payment by bank transfer and also accept cash or cheque payments.
