History

Potters Cross Playgroup was started in 1970 by Pat Chance and Janet Wright with approximately 18 children.

The children enjoyed a happy relaxed session with crafts, toys, singing and stories. Pat was still running the group when Jackie Flynn joined the team in 1979.

Jackie continued to work at Potters Cross for 40 years, and many of those years were spent running the group. Long standing member of the team, Mandy Arnold, took over the reins as Manager in 2016 and continues to lead the team today.

Potters Cross Preschool Playgroup has grown and matured into a strong setting with 54 children across the Playgroup and Preschool classes. OFSTED has continually rated the setting as  ‘Good’ or above.

Children are welcomed into a happy, relaxed, stimulating group supported by experienced teaching professionals who encourage and assist their individual interests and abilities. Heavy emphasis is put on social and emotional wellbeing and communication during those early weeks.
