Our History

Abbeymead Under 5's began nearly 30 years ago. Parents in the Abbeymead area wanted a playgroup for their children. The parents searched for temporary premises, unable to find an appropriate building in the area they looked further a field and found premises at St Philips and St James Church located in Hucclecote. The playgroup were able to rent the 'Youth Block' building from the church and we are still here to this present day!

For many years families were welcome through the door, offering sessions for children aged 3-5 years. Abbeymead Under 5's began to grow and grow! In 2013 we then introduced Toddler and Rising 3 Sessions as well as pre-school.

We now run both Rising 3s and Preschool from the Youth Block, each group having their own specific room, sharing the outdoor space.

We have strong community ties and we hope to be around for many more years to come.
