S’kids Playgroup

S’kids Pre-school Centre is based in Shieldhill and can offer places for children aged 2 - 5 years. Our centre is a great first step for children who are learning to settle away from family and help them become confident before the school nursery. We encourage them to interact with other children and learn social skills such as sharing and caring. We take children from all areas and have a well equipped playroom and garden. You can call us on (01324) 639052 to arrange a visit or info pack or visit
