Playlanders is a Registered Charity and not-for-profit community group, and is a member of the Pre-school Learning Alliance. We operate in St George’s Church Hall on Chesterfield Road. Originally St Christopher’s Nursery operated in the Church Hall, and closed in the spring of 1978, when the owner died. A group of parents who had children attending the nursery got together and decided to re-open as a playgroup. Playlanders was chosen as the name for the new group, and they opened their doors in April. Initially there were 3 staff, all of whom had children attending, and a further 12 children. The current head, Susan Lister, had a child attending when the playgroup opened. Over 30 years on many things have changed, but a few have stayed the same. Susan is still there, and so is one of the toys – the big red car (which is VERY old as we inherited it from the nursery). Over a thousand children have come and gone. There are children attending now whose parents were at Playlanders in the early years, and some of our current staff used to attend the group at the very beginning as children.
