Welcome to Scallywags

Scallywags is an OFSTED registered playgroup that provides sessional care for children between the ages of 18months and 5 years. We were set up in 1989 by ‘parents' to allow their children to socialize with other children of a similar age. In 2006 we moved to the grounds of West Hill primary school, we stayed there until July 2016 when our lease was terminated. Following this we sought new premises locally and found Florence Street Church Hall was vacant, after extensive renovations we reopened here in September 2016, this is within walking distance between both West Hill and Pye Green schools and we serve the local and surrounding community. We offer wrap around services for West Hill and Pye Green schools and Busy Buddies are happy to provide a before and after school club (dropping off and collecting from us). If you would like to come along to meet the staff please ring to make arrangements for a visit, we will be able to answer any queries you may have.


At Scallywags we aim:

  • To enhance the development and education of children under statutory school age in a parent-involving,community-based group.
  • To provide a safe, secure and stimulating environment
  • To work within a framework which ensures equality opportunity for all children and families.


We offer your child:

  • A specially tailored curriculum leading to the early learning goals.
  • Individual care and attention made possible by a high ratio of adults to children.
  • Fun and friendship with children and other adults.
  • The support of a personal key worker.
  • Opportunities for you and your family to be directly involved in the activities of the group and in your own child's progress.


We follow the EYFS and letters and Sounds curriculum

  • Personal social and emotional development.
  • Communication, language.
  • Mathematical development.
  • Understanding the world.

The learning which goes on in a playgroup forms the essential basis for school and beyond.
