Welcome to Haxby Playgroups!

We run two pre-schools in Haxby, both currently rated good by Ofsted, one based at Headlands Primary and the other at Ralph Butterfield Primary.

Who are we?

Haxby Playgroups was born out of the Haxby Mothers Union and Young Wives who came together to form a committee. They created a place to hold regular meetings for semi-organised play.

We now operate as a charity, overseen by a parent voluntary committee our provision is delivered by a fully qualified, highly skilled and passionate staff team.

What do we do?

We believe in placing the emphasis on giving the children a wide range of different experiences, inspired by their individual interest and needs from which they can develop to their full potential, in an enjoyable way.

In partnership with each child’s parents or carers we aim to create a caring, safe, secure, stimulating, relaxed, happy and supportive environment, where each child is valued as an individual and is encouraged to develop at their own pace.

Most of all we want all children to enjoy their learning experience and to provide equal opportunities for all.

Haxby Playgroups is a member of the Pre-School Learning Alliance and in accordance with this, Haxby Playgroups committee agree to adopt their constitution.

Please visit our ABOUT sections for more details on fees and opening times.

What are our plans for the future?

To enhance the resources and experiences we have worked hard to achieve for the children and families within our venues. Working with the parents, children and staff together to provide the best care and education and work towards making Haxby Playgroups an Outstanding provision.
