Welcome to Over Kellet Playgroup

Over Kellet Playgroup provides high quality care and education for children from the age of two years until they start school.

We have a lovely hall and large garden areas for plenty of outdoor fun in the beautiful village of Over Kellet.

Our friendly, qualified and experienced staff work in partnership with parents to help children learn and develop. We have excellent staff to child ratios and a full-time Early Years Teacher. We follow the statutory framework for early learning called the Early Years Foundation Stage - the Parent's Guide to the EYFS is available at Playgroup.

Over Kellet Playgroup is a member of the Early Years Alliance and is registered with OFSTED.

In November 2017 OFSTED judged Over Kellet Playgroup to be GOOD in all areas.
