About Us

Established over 25 years ago, Dagnall Under 5’s aims to provide a safe and secure environment in which children can learn and develop. Serving Dagnall and the surrounding villages, we have close links to local schools, churches and communities.

All our staff are checked by the relevant authorities to ensure their suitability and are qualified or working towards qualifications to DCSF standards. This means our playgroup leaders have to be qualified to level three and assistants to at least level 2.

We welcome children from 2 years to school age, including children with special needs and we have 2 SENCO trained staff.

Our roles within playgroup are:

Ann Pre-School Leader
Bev Deputy
Lisa EYTS (Early Years Teacher)
Debbie and Izzy (Level 3 Pre-school Assistants)

Government funding is available at Dagnall Under Fives for children aged 2 – 4 years old.

We also take work vouchers.

Non – funded places are £13.00 per session

Parents are invoiced at the beginning of each half term.


*Dagnall Under Fives is a registered charity and is managed by a parent committee which ensures that major decision making is in the hands of the parents who use the group. The committee is responsible for reviewing both policy and practice, and the employment and appraisal of staff.
