Little Otters


Welcome to Little Otters.

We are a governor led playgroup, based within the school grounds, in our own purpose built setting. We enrol children to start playgroup the school term of their third birthday, and they stay with us until they join Reception.

Our Playgroup Leader is Mrs Jo Jenkins and she is assisted by Mrs Caroline Charnley-Heaton, Mrs Allee Arkwell-Smyth and Mrs Heather Smith. All our children have a key person, who works to build a strong positive relationship with their children’s parents/carers.


We are open on Monday, Wednesday, Thursday and Friday, with a Toddler session on Tuesday mornings, during school term.

We enjoy lots of outside play, whatever the weather, but also lots of varied indoor activities including painting, modelling, cooking, story-time and best of all snack time!
