Our day

Playgroup sessions are held in the Playgroup Room at Knockando School, between 9.10am and 12.20pm, Monday to Friday. The Playgroup offers a wide range of activities at each session. These are designed to assist the children in their physical, emotional, language, expressive and social development.

The type of activities currently on offer include:

  • painting
  • junk modelling
  • play dough
  • construction toys
  • small world sets
  • puzzles and games, (including role playing games)
  • books
  • physical play
  • singing and rhyming games
  • music and movement
  • playing with sand
  • ICT
  • baking.

We also endeavour to have some outdoor time during as many sessions as possible and we are very fortunate that we have a lovely children’s playground, grass playing field, the school garden and even our very own greenhouse and some interesting woodland close by. Outdoor physical play and nature study are very much encouraged.

The children will also be offered other opportunities to interact in the local community, as they arise, perhaps performing a small “show” or taking part in dance, music or swimming sessions. We are always open to new activities that the children will both enjoy and learn from.
