Little Orchards

Welcome to Little Orchards, Crow Orchard Primary School’s parent and tots group, which caters for families and their children aged 0-4 years.

We run in our school hall every Wednesday from 9am – 10am.

Our aim in ‘Little Orchards’ is to provide a safe, secure and relaxed learning and play environment for young children and their families. We are open to families of children who attend the school, however we also welcome families from the local community.

 The group was set up by Miss Dowling in September 2009 and has been running successfully ever since. During this time we have had so much fun!

 Our group aims to meet the 5 outcomes set by the Every Child Matters Framework. These outcomes are:-

  • Be healthy
  • Stay safe
  • Enjoy and achieve
  • Make a positive contribution
  • Achieve economic well-being

 In our group, each term we aim to cover all 10 areas of learning. Sessions are planned in-depth in line with the Early years foundation stage.

 We love to join in with school activities too. We celebrate all occasions and enjoy making things to take home. We also have links with Park Children’s Centre, where we hold some of our sessions. We also hold some sessions in our local community, such as in the library and soft play centres.

We hope you enjoy your time with us and feel free to feedback or offer suggestions on how we could develop our sessions to suit the needs of your children.
