High Heaton Townswomen's Guild

Chairperson:  Mrs M Brown, Tel 07534 433346

Our Meetings are held on the last Tuesday of the month from 7-9pm, in the minor hall of St George’s United Reformed Church (entrance on Boundary Gardens).
 High Heaton Townswomen’s Guild is a welcoming guild to all.  As a group we are friendly and try to support each other, offering lifts where possible and keeping in touch if members are unable to attend.
We have excellent speakers at our regular monthly meetings and arrange a variety of social activities including outings, meals out, craft fayres, theatre visits, and an Annual Garden Party. We recently held a successful coffee morning in aid of Comic Relief, which the Townswomen’s Guild are supporting this year.
You can be sure of a warm welcome if you come along to our meetings- why not come along and see for yourself?

St. George’s Pre-School Ltd

St George's Pre-School, formerly called the Playgroup has been providing sessional care for over 45 years, and is open from Monday to Friday from 9.00 am to 12 noon and also Monday to Wednesday afternoons, during term time only. It has a manager, deputy and three members of staff, all of whom have appropriate child care certificates. The Pre-School is in receipt of funding for nursery education for three and four-year olds, and is inspected by OFSTED, the last occasion being June 2010.

The children are cared for in a happy and relaxed environment, and are well occupied with a range of activities set out in the large hall, which is bright and welcoming, and displays childrens work on the walls. There is a wide range of equipment, which is suitable for the childrens developmental needs. Staff support and extend the children’s learning as the children play. The smaller hall is used for quiet activities, such as story-telling, or singing, and there is also a side room, which contains a computer for the childrens use.

New parents are provided with a basic prospectus that outlines information about the group. Parents have access to policies, and the planning each day is available to view. Staff are always willing to discuss any issues or concerns with parents.

Activities in the room are set out to reflect the six areas of learning, which are Communication, Language and Literacy; Mathematics; Personal Social and Emotional Development; Knowledge and Understanding of the World; Physical Development; and Creative Development.

For further information, please contact the Playgroup Leader, Mrs Val Kane, on 0191 266 4090, or 07940 769180
