Welcome To The Playhouse
Located in Greenbank, Bristol Children's Playhouse is a charity which provides a supportive and stimulating environment for the whole family. Unique to the area it offers a family 'Drop-In' (stay and play) facility and a Pre-school. The Pre-School and Drop-in are housed in separate buildings but share the wonderful outdoor play area.
Open since 1979 Bristol Children's Playhouse is a well used and essential part of the community. Our aim is to safeguard and promote the welfare of children in need within the family and provide quality pre-school education allowing children to gain positive experiences which will improve their confidence and self-esteem. We work against the isolation, deprivation and poverty of families and disadvantaged people within the community.
Working with Parents/Carers to provide an inclusive pre-school Nursery encouraging learning through play, positive self image and respect. Qualified, experienced staff provide 3 & 4 year olds with 15 hours a week free entitlement with Nursery Education Grant during term time following the Early Years Foundation Stage.
We currently provide 2 year olds with 12 hours a week during term time. The remainder of the hours are taken up in the holidays.
Additional hours can be paid for if available.
The Family Drop-In
We provide an open access family centre offering enriching, fun play opportunities for children and support to Parent/Carers which reflect cultural diversity.
Stoke Park staff will be running Stay and Play sessions on Thursday and Friday from 9:30 to 11:00
Sorry, but due to renovation work, the drop-in is currently not running until further notice.
