Bishopthorpe pre-school playgroup is known and respected by many Bishopthorpe parents as the place where their sons and daughters got their first real taste of education in a fun and friendly atmosphere. The playgroup is now asking for help from local residents to ensure that the success of the group continues in the year ahead.
The chairperson of the playgroup, Louise Desai, would like to appeal to local residents to take part in the running of playgroup, and has asked for help from the community as follows: –
“Do you have some time to spare and would like to help a charity right on your doorstep?”
“Bishopthorpe Playgroup is a registered charity and an ofsted-rated ‘Outstanding’ early years setting. We are a community playgroup, run by a committee of parents. Due to the relatively short amount of time that children attend our playgroup, the committee suffers from a rather high turnover and we would love to have a volunteer or two on the committee who could offer some stability. If you have an interest in providing excellent care for preschool children we would love to hear from you. You don’t have to have a child who attends the playgroup. We’d also love to hear from you if you’d like to volunteer to do some activities with the children: crafts, gardening, cooking, even just reading stories. ”
