We provide a stimulating, rewarding and welcoming play environment for children and, by introducing them to group activities and new skills, provides an effective bridge between home and pre-school nursery. What more could you ask for?

There is also limited spaces available for the Blackhall Toddler Group.

The Blackhall Toddler Group is run by local parents and warmly welcomes babies and children up to three years old together with their parent or carer.
This is a Tuesday group which runs during school term time from 9:30 - 11am.
They offer a variety of toys for all ages, singing, healthy snacks for children and tea/coffee with goodies for the adults.
Interest from new members for the Tuesday group is always welcome. Although there is sometimes a waiting list for a place in the group, it is hoped that no one has to wait too long. Any parent/carer with a baby/toddler can put their name down.

Alternatively, you are most welcome to visit the group to introduce yourself and register your interest.
