Shaw Ridge Playgroup is a well established early years setting in Shaw, a district of west Swindon in Wiltshire. We provide high quality care and ‘learning through play’ for children aged 3 to 5 in a happy, safe, fun and stimulating environment.
For many children, attending a playgroup is their first step towards independence. At Shaw Ridge Playgroup our aim is to help your child to mix socially and to develop through a wide range of experiences and activities in a safe and happy environment. Each child has a personal Key Person who makes sure that your child is making satisfactory progress in their learning and development.
With the emphasis on play, our activities include music, singing, painting, water play, crafts and dressing up. We have a secure outdoor garden where the children can play with a wide range of outdoor toys and apparatus. We also organise outings and have events and visits throughout the year.
The playgroup is located in the Community Rooms next to Shaw Ridge Primary School, we have links with the school – which assists your child’s smooth transition into full time education.
As a registered charity, Shaw Ridge Playgroup operates for the benefit of the local community and belongs to the families that use it. You will find comprehensive information about our Playgroup within this website, but the best ways to find out more about us are to talk to the Playgroup staff and to arrange a visit with your child.
