Overton Playgroup


Overton Preschool Playgroup has been in the heart of Overton for over 30 years and some of the parents bringing their own children here today also spent time here as children.  Playgroup has an ‘Outstanding’ Ofsted report.

It has two settings – a Playgroup based in the village Community Centre and a second setting based at Overton Primary School, dedicated to children in their pre-school year.

We are a charity, registered with the Charity Commission for England and Wales and we are run by a voluntary parent management committee. We are passionate about providing quality care and education to local children through a team of professionally qualified and experience staff.
