Gresford Governors' Clubs & Playgroup - Playgroup & Playgroup Plus

Gresford Governors' Clubs and Playgroup launches from September 2022 following the merging of operations of the Gresford Governors' Clubs and the Gresford Playgroup Ducks and Ducklings.  This new and exciting service will be provided by the same dedicated staff team and as one entity will make booking, payment and use of things such as the 30 Hour Childcare Offer much easier for parents and carers. The Gresford Governors' Clubs and Playgroup provide care for children aged between 2 and 12 years old.


The Gresford Governors' Clubs and Playgroup operate from The Cedar Rooms building at All Saints' School. The setting will be registered with the Charity Commission and the Care Inspectorate Wales. Whilst they do operate from the school site, the Gresford Governors' Clubs and Playgroup are legally and technically independent from the operations of the school.


The Gresford Governors' Clubs and Playgroup operate as a Foundation Charitable Incorporated Organisation which is overseen by a Management Committee made up of members of the Governing Body of All Saints' School. The Responsible Individual is Mr Richard Hatwood who can be contacted through the main school office. We employ experienced, caring, friendly and well qualified staff to look after the children.  All of our staff are Disclosure and Barring Service (DBS) checked and trained in emergency paediatric first aid, safeguarding and food hygiene.


The Early Years Department of the School provides support for the setting and children attending to ensure a smooth and successful transition into school. The setting benefits from a fully re-furbished building, extensive outdoor area and access to the onsite Forest School area. The children undertake different activities each day and we have access to a secure, enclosed outside area which we encourage the children to use at each session.


From September 2022, we will offer Full Day Care (9am - 3.15pm) for children aged 2 upwards in our Playgroup Setting and will offer Playgroup Plus Setting to provide full wrap around care for those children who attend Nursery at All Saints' School.  In addition, the Breakfast, Teatime and Holiday Club can all be accessed to provide care from 7.45am - 5.45pm during every school day and 8am - 5.30pm during school holidays. (With the exception of the Christmas Holiday). 


We will also be offering hot meals, cooked and served onsite for all children who are on the school site for the full day. All bookings and payment will be made using our online booking and payment portal. Please ensure that registration forms are completed and returned prior to completing the online booking and payment registration. 


Our new provision, The Gresford Governors' Clubs and Playgroup will provide Full Day Care for children aged 2 - 12 years old from 8am - 5.30pm during term time and school holidays. You can register your interest and receive a call back to discuss your needs in more detail by completing the form at the base of this page.


Children attending morning Nursery and then Playgroup Plus are escorted safely across to The Cedar Rooms by our staff at 11.30 am. Those who attend afternoon Nursery are taken to the Nursery class following Playgroup Plus at 12.45pm when their session in school begins. All children who are with us all day, or over the lunchtime will enjoy their lunch together in the school canteen or in The Cedar Rooms. Children can bring their own packed lunch (ensuring it is healthy in nature) or can access school hot or cold dinners.
