We are passionate about learning through play.

Hello! We are a small, nurturing, community-led nursery and preschool for 2-4 year olds. We’ve been at the heart of Hinksey Park since 1969 (formerly ‘Lake Street Playgroup’).

We are passionate about learning through play. We see young children thrive when they have space for their own creative free play, under the care of attentive, supportive and trusted adults. We know that when we put young children’s social-emotional needs first, and provide them with stimulating natural learning opportunities, we set them up to reap life-long benefits.

We are a registered charity, run by local parents, for local families. We are not directly funded by the Local Education Authority or the Council, and we are not part of a franchise or chain. We rely on fundraising and generous donations for all our play equipment, furniture, resources and upkeep.
