Grindleford and Eyam Playgroup offers an array of indoor and outdoor learning to nurture little minds and bodies with love, inspiration and outdoor adventures to give the children in our community the best start in life.
Grindleford and Eyam Playgroup prides itself in the individual love, care, fresh air and attention that it gives each child. With many years child care experience with a tried and proven recipe for children’s development. Our children are encouraged to explore and investigate in a safe and secure environment.
We are not a council-run playgroup, or a private business; we are a charity that operates not for profit, reinvesting any surplus into the development of the playgroup.
Our aim is to provide the tools and the opportunities to enable each child to reach their full potential. This combined with having as much fun as possible is a sure start in laying the foundations for the future.
The development of any child during those early years is so important, and we really understand that. Every day we explore new ways to expand the children's experience and learning in a fun and stimulating way
Why We Need Your Extra Support!!
We are reaching out to our parents, grandparent, supporter's and local communities to help raise some money towards the reopening of our playgroup.
Being a charity run playgroup we don't get much help during the Covid-19 pandemic from the government.
We can recive the funding for our children who are eligible for the free hour places, however this is a very low income towards our overheads. Funding does not just pay staff wages but also contributes towards the ever-growing expenses that come from running a playgroup. Budgets have to be tightly managed and fundraising events planned throughout the year to support the continued running.
We had lots of fundraising events planned which have now unfortunately had to be cancelled due to the Covid-19 situation, which is why without your extra support during this critical time we may not be able to provide what we have in the past.
We want to be there when all this is over, so please help us raise money towards bills for the building, snack and resources for the children when they return and to pay our hard working team who even through this difficult time, when they can't be in playgroup, are working hard and planning for the children's future.
We are, of course, aware that many families will have met their own hardships due to COVID19 and if you cannot contribute at this point in time please do not worry. Perhaps you can share this fundraising link instead. For those of us who are fortunate enough to still be in position to do so, any contribution -no matter how small- will be gratefully received and make a difference, keeping Grindleford and Eyam Playgroup going until we can reopen safely!
Please share/tell everyone and anyone who’ll listen about our Crowdfunder.
Your support is vital to the future of Grindleford and Eyam Playgroup.
On behalf of the Children & Staff, thank you!
