At Carryduff Pre-school we believe playgroup is the ideal setting for children to learn to socialize, accept simple rules, and to experience a range of creative, imaginative and physical play under the guidance of caring adults, committed to providing high quality, pre-school education. All children are welcome, regardless of ability, background, race or religion.

Our Playgroup adheres to the N.I. Pre-school Curriculum Guidance, which concentrates on the six areas of learning and development:

  • The World Around Us
  • Early Mathematical Experiences
  • Language & Literacy
  • The Arts
  • Physical Development
  • Personal, Social & Emotional Development

We are a busy playgroup with lots of exciting indoor and outdoor learning experiences to promote high quality teaching and learning. We focus on ensuring that our children are safe and have lots of fun while learning. We believe that strong relationships with parents and carers, supports the holistic development of our children and we continually aim to develop and maintain these.

Prospective parents are always welcome to contact our centre to make enquiries.

Still in it together

This past year has been different and challenging for everyone and Carryduff Pre-school is no exception! We’ve had to cancel our Open Night and Morning for our September ’21 children, however we hope our guided tour by photo gallery will give you, and your child, an insight to our playrooms and what happens at our pre-school.

But there is a really good story!

Thanks to the generosity and support from our staff team, and committee, Carryduff Play Care Centre has been able to provide a continuous, childcare service to many key worker families throughout lockdown.

We realise it’s not the end of the Covid-19 story, but we want to celebrate the impact our staff’s commitment has made to the wider community, and we hope to be in a position to welcome parents and children to visit our pre-school during the summer term, to meet the staff team.
