We are an Early Years setting in the village of Snodland.
The original ‘playgroup’ was located near the village clock tower (hence our name) and is believed to have been running since the 1970s. In fact, one of the owner managers, Janey, has been here for 25 years, shortly followed by Kath – our longest serving member of staff. Several other staff also joined us between 10–20 years ago, so we have a very passionate core of long standing team members.
We offer a homely, cosy & caring environment, where children are encouraged to be imaginative and independent whilst they learn through their play.
We care for children from age 2, and have a ‘family’ approach in our setting, meaning all of our children are mixed regardless of their age, and can access every area of our pre-school.
We are extremely proud of our achievements, including nationally recognised accreditations in Sun Safety and First Aid (Millie's Mark), 5* Food Safety, and an outstanding Ofsted report (read here).
The owners and management team are;
Sally Wingham – Setting Manager / SENCO, Lara Baverstock – Office Manager, and; Janey Law – Designated Safeguarding Lead. We also have a team of Early Years Leaders. See Meet the Team.
