Abbeymead Under 5's began 25 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.
With the high demand of parents wanting places, in September 2015 Toddler and Rising 3's began to run from the church hall offering preschool permanent premises for 5 hour sessions that would run form the youth block. This is how we continue to run at present.
