Welcome to Reigate Parish Playgroup
We are a friendly and well established playgroup in the heart of Reigate, on the Reigate Parish Church Primary School site, staffed by highly qualified Play Leaders with a volunteer Committee of parents.
Parents of current and future Playgroup children,
The Trustees and Staff of Reigate Parish Playgroup have been working hard to secure a site for the continuance of the Playgroup from September 2020. We are now delighted to confirm that we will be relocating and joining Everychild Trust at their premises on Hatchlands Road.
We are excited about this new chapter for our Playgroup which will secure its future and continuation. The Playgroup will be part of Everychild Trust who are a trust set up for local schools, and successfully run Hatchlands and Sandcross Primary School. We are confident that our Playgroup will be an excellent fit, driven by our shared vision and passion for early years education. This is a positive move and we are looking forward to working together with the Everychild Trust.
More details will follow shortly of how these changes will take place, and the exciting opportunities this move will present to our families.
