At Hexham Community Centre Playgroup children are at the centre of everything that we do.

Our Approach

Our priority is the happiness of your child. We’ve created a warm and nurturing environment in which your child can flourish, grow and learn, with lots of praise and hugs along the way!

We pride ourselves on our caring approach and believe that children learn most through playing, exploring, being active, creative and by asking lots questions.

We celebrate the fact that each child is totally unique and support them to develop confidence in their own abilities and begin a lifelong love of learning.
