Registration Information


Your child’s name will be placed on a waiting list either via our Parent and Toddler Group or because you have contacted us asking us to do so. We endeavour to take children at the start of term after their second birthday. However, this is not always possible if there is a larger number of older children.


When a place becomes available for your child, you will be contacted by telephone.

At that point, you will be asked if you are prepared to download the documents on-line or prefer to receive them in hard format via the post. You will also be sent a letter or e-mail confirming the sessions available to your child.

Upon receipt of the e-mail or letter, we would ask that you complete the registration form.

You may complete your registration form and e-mail it back to us. We will ask you to sign it at your child’s first playgroup session.

About Us

West Looe Playgroup was started in 1971 when Mrs Fiddick and Mrs Payne realized the need for a playgroup in West Looe.  It was first located in the Salem Chapel in West Looe Hill and has had a number of moves before arriving at its present premises in The Old School Canteen, Downs Road, West Looe.

The Playgroup is a community group, owned and run by the Parents of the children attending the group.  The committee is elected at the Annual General Meeting during the Summer Term.  Whilst the committee administers and is responsible for the policy of the group, it still needs the support and the involvement of the parents.

The playgroup is located on the western side of the town in a large dedicated building which has undergone considerable refurbishment over the last few years. To the front of the building is an enclosed play area and this leads to a covered outdoor play area to the rear of the building which allows the children to play outdoors at any time.

The playgroup provides for the early years foundation stage and encourages learning through play.
It has strong links with the local primary schools in order to ensure the transition is made as easily as possible for the children.

We also operate a Parent and Under 3’s  Group on a Friday afternoon.

The playgroup is registered with Ofsted, the Charities Commission and is also a member of the Pre-School Learning Alliance.


To provide a safe, high-quality and positive environment to enable the participation of all pre-school children in learning through play.
