About Us

Snacks and lunch

We provide a healthly snack of different fruit every morning and afternoon.

we ask that you provide a packed lunch for your child if they are attending between 12-1.


The cost per hour is £5.00 for aged 3 – 4 year olds and £5.25 for 2 year olds.

For example: a morning session (3hrs) for a 2 year old will cost £ 15.75 and a full day (6hrs) for aged 3 and above will cost £30.00. However please be aware that Nursery Education Funding (NEF) is available to all, from the term following your child’s 3rd birthday and for some 2 year olds (as this is means tested).

Your child has an allowance of 15 hours per week funding, applied flexibly across days. To apply for the government funding, we will provide you with the necessary forms to sign and declare if you are in receipt of NEF from any other pre-school setting.


Dilwyn Playgroup has a set of policies and procedures, which explain the guidelines that staff work to, and how and why we do things.

These policies have been recently reviewed and we aim to review them annually (or more frequently if required) so your comments and suggestions are always welcomed! All amendments and changes to policies are detailed in the newsletters.

Policies are approved at committee meetings with contributions welcomed from both parents and the staff. All our policies and procedures are available to read at Playgroup (kept in a white file on the windowsill in the entrance cloakroom) personal copies are available on request.
