Learning through play

Mayflower Playgroup

Mayflower Playgroup is part of Christ Church Haywards Heath and as a Christian playgroup we aim to maintain a distinctively Christian ethos and to provide regular teaching about the Christian faith. However we welcome children into the playgroup of all faiths and none, and there is no requirements for church attendance.


We value each child and aim to provide equal opportunity for the development and growth in self-confidence of each child regardless of their race, religion or beliefs.



Our sessions run from 9.15 am to 2.45 pm on Monday, Wednesdays and Thursday, and 9.15 am to 12.15 pm on Tuesdays and Fridays during term time. We maintain a ratio of at least one member of our caring and experienced staff to every eight children, with more staff if there are children under 3 present.



We have a ‘child-centred’ approach to learning, planned around a child’s individual needs and interests and informed by regular observational assessment.
