About Us

A little bit about us

Abington Vale Playschool has been established since 1969. Since we opened we have had the honour and privilege of working for many families. We are proud to have recommendations and a waiting list for new starters!


Our fantastic team of dedicated Child Care Practitioners are proud of the Playschool and we strive to encourage children to learn through play while having a fun experience!


The Playschool is registered with Ofsted and the Local Authority and is affiliated to the Preschool Learning Alliance. Our last Ofsted rating was 'Good' across all areas, if you would like to read our Ofsted report follow the link on our news page. 

 We cater for children from the age of 2 to 4 years old. We provide a friendly, caring and nurturing environment for children and can have up to 24 children per session, we are a term time only setting and our session times run from, 9am to 12pm and 12.30pm to 3.30pm, with an optional lunch club between 12 and 12.30pm. (Children should bring their own packed lunch however we provide nutritional snacks.)


We are very lucky to have an enclosed outdoor play area which we use as an outdoor classroom ensuring the children can experience an even wider range of fun learning activities both inside and out. The play area is exclusive to our playschool therefore we can enhance the area in line with the children’s interests.


The whole team are very passionate about the Playschool. Together we provide a high quality standard of care for all children. We have policies and procedures in place to promote consistency in all we do. If you wish to have a copy of these policies, please ask.


This website also keeps parents up to date with recent events, news about what the children have been doing and other updates.
