Our eldest son went to Crofthead and our youngest is currently on the waiting list for the playgroup. He throughly enjoyed his time at the playgroup and experienced many new activities aswell as having the opportunity to do his favourite activity - painting - to his hearts content. The facilties/range of toys and activities are very good and well thought out, but what makes this playgroup really standout though is the outside space. The staff are enthusastic and take a great interest in the children. Only downside to the Playgroup is the small entrance hall that the parents wait to pick the children up in, but hey you can't have everything.
