About Us

Established in September 1968 our original location was the Y.M.C.A Park Road, Kingswood. Here we held a playgroup and a parent and toddler group. In 1999 we relocated to our current location, Kingswood Congregational Church and in April 2002 we became a pre-school, and enhanced our service from sessions only to full day care. The pre-school caters for children aged 2 to 5 years old and offers various sessions from Monday to Friday 9.15am to 11.45, 9.15am-2.15pm for grant children and 12.30 to 3.00pm. We also offer all 3 and 4 year olds 15 hours funded by the Nursery Education Grant.

The pre-school is owned and managed by Nicola Long, Nicola has owned Playaway Pre-School Ltd since September 2011 and successfully runs the pre-school along with her 11 members of qualified staff. The team work hard together, to provide a safe, happy, stimulating and caring environment for the children.

The Pre-school organisation consists of:

  • Pre-school Leader BA HONONRS
  • Deputy Leader
  • Assistants

All of our staff are qualified in childcare or working towards a level 3 qualification, and hold a current Paediatric First Aid Certificate. All staff frequently attend educational and topical courses, so our staff and our pre-school is always following best practice in our field. We are very proud of our high ratio of staff to children as this ensures individual attention is given to the needs and development of each child.
