Sherwood Playgroup CIO is a Pre- School held within the Sherwood Community Centre. It was originally established in 1961 as Sherwood Playgroup, at that time it was a section of the Sherwood Community Centre coming under their charity status. During 2013 we could no longer remain as a section so we became a charity within our own right, this then meant that in 2014 after the charity status was finalised we had to re register with Ofsted, we are now known as Sherwood Playgroup CIO. We are still one of the longest running playgroups in Nottingham.We have a wide range of good quality toys maintained to a high standard and regularly updated. The staff provide a caring and happy environment for children to play and learn. The Playgroup is a Charitable Incorporated Organisation and our funds are raised and managed by trustees and general members, these members include parents and carers.New parents are welcome to attend the meetings which are held approximately once every half-term, we are always looking for willing parents to come along and see what the Playgroup is all about.

" I am very happy with the care my daughter has received since she's been at the Playgroup, she has gained a lot of confidence and enjoys a wide range of activities. She has developed great social skills and learnt a lot about numbers,shapes and colours, she has also learnt to use all the outdoor equipment."  A quote from a Parent feedback form ( May 2015 )
