St. Brigid’s Parish Playschool


Located in the old school building in the Parish grounds, a fun & vibrant Playschool is available for children from 2 years & 8 months to 5 years in either a part-time or full-time capacity


In St. Brigid’s Parish Playschool, we hope to provide a safe, stimulating and secure environment where every child feels valued and grows and learns through play. We attend the school church service each Friday morning and rely heavily on the extended church community, both old and young, for support.


Playschool hours are 9.00 – 12.30. One healthy snack is provided each day at 9.30am and children bring a healthy lunch.


During the course of each week, activities might include art and craft (painting, printing, clay modelling, woodwork, gluing and sticking to name just a few), singing, drama, a League of Health class, games, drawing and outdoor play. During fine weather, we use the playschool yard (fitted with a special absorbent surface) and rectory field for activities.


Staff are trained and very well experienced. Staff are recruited with great care and a probationary period is always included. We are sometimes joined by students on work experience (usually past pupils!) and by Special Needs Assistants, as required.
