Tiptree Preschool Playgroup was established over forty years ago and is a registered charity and a member of the Pre-School Learning Alliance. Registered for Children from age 2 – 5 years. Ofsted Inspected.

The playgroup is split into three sites in Tiptree - Milldene Playgroup, United Reform Church Playgroup and Baynards Playgroup. All three playgroups are under the control of a central committee, consisting of two trustees, three officers, a coordinator and committee members. The Committee meets once a month at their Milldene facility.

Our aim is to help children to develop social and communication skills by listening and responding as part of a group and on an individual basis.
