Portrush Community Playgroup
We welcome you and your child to Portrush Community Playgroup and trust the time spent here is both happy and beneficial.
Portrush Community Playgroup is a registered charity and has been in operation since 1972. We are a cross community Playgroup. For over 47 years we have been at the heart of the town meeting the needs of children in an ever changing society. We have a highly qualified and experienced staff team of 3 members. The staff are highly motivated and dedicated in providing a nurturing and supportive environment that meets the developmental needs of each individual child.
We have just extended our outdoor area and were awarded lottery funding for the resources and equipment. Our new outdoor area provides a stimulating and challenging learning experience across all areas of the curriculum
We operate a High Scope approach – High Scope is an approach to learning derived from development principles.
We believe that children learn best when they are engaged in planning, carrying out and reflecting on their experiences.
"The Pre School environment was clean, bright and spacious. The staff members were very welcoming and friendly to parents/carers at collection when they provided useful and informative feedback on the child’s day. Staff were responsive to the play, learning and care needs of the children within the setting. The staff team are to be commended for the continued provision of high quality care for the children.

Portrush Community Playgroup aims to advance the education of young children through the provision of an appropriate, safe and satisfying programme of play and activities, to meet with the requirements of the Department of Education’s curriculum. We believe ‘interaction and play are the main channels through which children learn and develop’.
