Westend Playgroup is the winner of the Early Years Wales Outdoor Space 2021 award. This would not have been possible without the help of the committee, parents who have given time to developing the space, staff, Steve Oram Carpentry, Health and Sustainability Preschool Scheme, CYPP Vale of Glamorgan Council, Forest Products, and Orchards for Schools. This is work in progress - watch this space!
The Westend Playgroup is located in the West End of Barry. We pride ourselves on our provision of quality pre-school education for up to 28 children aged between 2 and 5 years, regardless of gender, disability, race, ethnicity, social class or religion. Our priority is the happiness and well-being of children in our care, combined with ensuring we provide a fun and stimulating early years learning environment.
What we are working on
April - July 2022
We will be working on the theme of 'On the Farm' through craft, activities, song/rhymes, stories and carpet time. We will continue exploring key language and number skills.
Healthy living - food and exercise will continue to be promoted.
Information about weekly and daily activities can be found on the notice board in the entrance foyer and on the white board in the main hall.
