Welcome to the Saundersfoot Playgroup & Daycare.

A Little History

Saundersfoot Playgroup opened in the 1980s in the then small village hall as a result of a successful parent and toddler groups growing needs. In 2018, the Playgroup expanded to offer full-time childcare and wraparound service for Nursery pupils in connection with Saundersfoot CP school. In January 2022, the playgroup relocated from the Regency Hall to Saundersfoot CP School offering a more convenient solution for families with daycare and school all in one place from the age of 2 years old.
