St Paul's Playgroup was established 33 years ago. It is situated in the grounds of the old Sherborne Primary School in the town of Sherborne. The playgroup is based in a self contained unit, it serves the local community and works closely with local schools. It is a sessional playgroup, with charity status that is run by a parental committee of volunteers, they operate under the Preschool Learning Alliance constitution and have adapted their policies. The playgroup serves the local community and places are offered to children who come from a range of different backgrounds. Some have been identified as having special educational needs, but none of them have English as an additional language. The playgroup is in receipt of the Government funding, there are 35 children on roll and currently there are 21 three year olds and 8 four year olds that are funded. The playgroup is registered for 24 2-5 year olds. They are open term time only, Monday to Friday from 9:00 - 12 noon. Dependent on numbers, afternoon sessions from 13:00 - 15:30 are also offered. The accommodation consists of a foyer with access to toilet facilities and two play rooms. One houses a segregated kitchen area and is set up for imaginary and physical activities. The session is divided to allow the children opportunities to use both areas. The setting also has it's own tarmac outdoor play area that is securely fenced and gated. The playgroup employs a preschool leader who holds the Diploma in Preschool Practice and six members of staff, five of whom are appropriately qualified and one member who is currently undertaking NVQ III in child care and education. St Paul's Playgroup has achieved accreditation with the Preschool Learning Alliance. Support and curriculum advice is given by the advisors from the local authority.
