Cake Sale

A reminder to all parents and carers that to conclude our week of baking we will be holding a cake sale on Friday 7th October from 3pm in the school playground.  We look forward to seeing you there.

National Cake Week!

We have been very busy this week celebrating ‘National Cake Week’. We have been painting cakes, drawing cakes, colouring cakes, making play dough cakes, having a cake tea party and of course, most importantly, we have been making cakes (and eating them!). So far this week we have made a lemon cake, orange cake, a spiced Dorset apple cake, carrot cake and have been icing and decorating cupcakes. And it’s only Wednesday! The children have loved every minute and have all been very enthusiastic bakers. We look forward to baking a marble cake, banana cake and chocolate crispie cakes as the week goes on. Yum!!



A reminder to all parents, carers and friends of Beaminster Playgroup that our committee AGM is tomorrow, Tuesday 4th October at 7pm, being held at Playgroup. As some members have recently left the committee as their children have now moved on to school we urgently need to recruit some new people to our team. Anybody can join the committee and it is a great way of meeting new people whilst having a positive input in shaping the future of our Playgroup. If you would like some more information then please feel free to speak to any of our current committee members or of course a member of staff. We look forward to seeing you at the meeting!

Two Year Olds

A reminder to all parents and carers that we are now taking children from the age of Two years. We still have some availability so if you would like more information on booking your child into Playgroup sessions then please feel free to contact us on 01308 863959.

What’s new?


We have been very busy over the summer holidays, carrying out some maintenance work and giving our lovely ‘Cosy Cottage’ and ‘Oscars House’ a lick of paint, to ensure everything is spick and span for the start of the Autumn term.  And look at our fantastic new editions to the outside area…our apple and pear number trees!  I think we are going to be having lots of fun with these.

Welcome back

We hope you have all enjoyed your summer break.  A reminder to our parents and carers that the Autumn term begins on Monday 5th September 2016, with our Parent and Toddler session in the morning and Pre-School in the afternoon.  We look forward to welcoming back the children who are returning to us this term and also saying a big hello to the children who are due to start their playgroup journey with us.

A lovely little poem….

We are very proud to share a lovely poem about Beaminster Playgroup, written by one of our parents at the end of the summer term, as their little girl left us to go on to big school.  It is a wonderful poem, full of lovely words…something we will treasure for a very long time.

Christmas Craft Fair 2015

As we begin the autumn term it is time to start thinking about our next big fundraising event. We are very pleased to announce that we are once again holding a Christmas Craft Fair, an event that has proved very popular over the previous two years.  We will have many unique and wonderful local producers selling their goods so there will plenty on offer to appeal to everybody.
