Our Mission Statement
At Minster Playgroup, we are dedicated to the social, emotional, and educational development of children in their early years within a stimulating, safe, caring, and fully inclusive setting.
Our Playgroups promotes a safe, caring and supportive and inclusive environment where each child's self esteem is fostered by positive relationships with each other, staff and volunteers. We strive to have parents, carers and community members actively involved in our children's learning.
For more than 50 years, we have been providing the local community with an outstanding childcare solution. This, coupled with our highly experienced and dedicated Early Years Practitioners, ensures that our two settings will continue to deliver exemplary care and tuition to our prospective and current children, parents, and families.
We offer both morning and afternoon sessions at our Brecon Chase setting, and currently mornings and all day on Monday & Friday at our Abbey setting. Both of our sites operate on a term time only basis. We offer 15 hours universal funded hours and an additional 6 extended funded hours over 38 weeks of the year.
