Playmates Pre-school


just here to say a massive thank you to all of the amazing staff at playmates who have cared for my children for almost 6 years now. at a time when I lost all trust in child care settings you all reignited my trust and made me feel comfortable leaving my children with people again. I'll never forget your kindness and how you bent over backwards to accommodate what we needed (I know it can't have always been easy) but I appreciate you all so much and am so so sad that our journey with you all has ended but it didn't feel right to go without reminding you all how amazing you are ❤❤❤ thank you so much, we will miss you all

Welcome to Playmates Pre-school. We take children from 2 years old and are fully inclusive to the individual needs of every child.

We are a small, friendly and nurturing preschool that has been running since 1987 in a beautiful local community hall given to the people of Roffey in 1904. Our staff are all trained to Level 3 and above and all staff are First Aid trained. We work to the ratio of 1 adult to 4 two year old's and 1 adult to 8 three/four year old's. We have sole use of the hall during session times and the building

Operating as usual


We shall be holding our first coffee morning of the term tomorrow everyone is welcome


We would like to thank our parents for your support through the year and those whose children left for big school this year and wish you all an amazing future and thank you for your support and we would like to thank you for your amazing gifts we received and your thoughtfulness and the wonderful words in your cards, the children are going to love the tablet and we really can’t thank you enough We are going to really miss you all and look forward to updates as your children embark on the next step in their journey 💝
