The Dawnay Playgroup Team

We have a very loyal team of 5 staff, with many years experience. Most of our staff are parents themselves ranging from children in Infant school through to grown up children at university and beyond. The experience and qualifications of our staff contribute to our depth of skill and understanding of child development.

  • Our Playgroup Leaders are all qualified in relevant Early Years Education qualification. 

  • All staff are qualified in Pediatric First Aid and Food hygiene.

  • We are committed to ongoing training needs in all areas of Early Years Education for all staff that work within Playgroup.

Once your child starts they will get to know all the staff who work on their day as staff rotas usually stay the same. The children become used to interacting with their key person and a variety of adults as well as other children. 

By working in teams we find we can maintain a flexible and fresh approach and the children can become used to interacting with a variety of adults as well as other children.

There is considerable co operation and liaison between the teams, and we meet 'officially' on a regular basis to discuss activities and topics relating to the day to day running of the playgroup.
