Children are accepted at Rodborough Playgroup from the age of 2 years 6 months.

If you require additional childcare we have a list of local childminders who might be able to drop off/ pick up from playgroup. Please ask for details.

We accept the government's nursery education funding which means that from the start of the term after your child turns three you can receive up to 15 hours of sessions free of charge. (Funding is for the total number of hours your child uses, so if he / she attends another setting as well this would need to be taken into account). Playgroup arranges this funding and you will be asked to sign a form at the beginning of terms 1, 3 and 5 to claim. 

Additional funding is now availble for some parents and must be applied for by the parents themselves. For more information see

For any hours not covered by funding from 2 November 2020 we charge £4.50/hr for children aged 3 or 4 and £4.60/hr for 2 year olds. 

We will give parents a minimum of one months notice if we intend to raise our fees.

Most of our income comes from the funding we receive from the government's nursery education scheme and the fees we charge (as above).  As a charity we also run a variety of fundraising activities which bring in extra income that allows us to improve the quality of the learning experience we are able to offer. We are a completely non-profit organisation and all the income we receive goes into providing the services we offer.
