Playgroup Progress

< Back to listing

Plans to expand Romsey Mill’s Playgroup are gathering pace. The additional setting in Ross Street Community Centre has been refurbished and includes a much larger outdoor play area, new storage, office space, loos and a kitchen for cooking with the children! There is also parking, which will be a big help for parents or children with mobility issues. It has been successfully registered with Ofsted.

The aim is to have older children in Romsey Mill Playgroup (Ross Street), and younger ones will continue at Romsey Mill Playgroup (Hemingford Road). Romsey Mill can then offer Playgroup places to younger children and will have space for two and three year old funded places as well as for children from fee paying families.

After Easter, both Playgroups will run Monday to Friday, 9am to 12 noon, and once everyone is settled in, the Ross Street site hours will be extended to 3pm. There is a waiting list, so to apply for a place, pick up a form from Romsey Mill Centre, download from here or email Playgroup.

Romsey Mill will be recruiting additional staff and volunteers, as well as asking for help sourcing toys and equipment, so keep an eye on our Facebook page ( or the jobs page or volunteering page of this website for details.
