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 over 30 years. 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 have a passion for being outdoors in nature, and have a small 'forest' adventure area where we spend much of our time.
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 are registered with Ofsted (latest report read here).
The owners / management team are;
Sally Wingham – Setting Manager/SENCO, Lara Baverstock – Office Manager, and;
Janey Law – Designated Safeguarding Lead.
