Welcome to Tweseldown Playgroup

Tweseldown Playgroup was established in 1981. We have approximately 50 children aged between 2 years nine months to five attending the 9 sessions run each week. We use the 10th session to update the children’s “learning journeys” and plan for the following week using our updated knowledge to ensure we plan for each child as an individual. We are open term times only, in line with Hampshire schools.

Our Aims

At Tweseldown Playgroup we aim to offer a warm and welcoming environment to children and parents where children are valued as individuals regardless of their race, culture, religion, means or ability.

We follow a play based curriculum where children have the opportunity to develop personally, socially and emotionally. We aim for parents, committee and staff to work together for the benefit of the children in our care.

We are proud to offer a range of first hand experiences which help us in working towards the aspirations we have for all children to achieve, through a quality curriculum, as they transition to school.


” Moving from Canada to the UK was a big adjustment for us, especially my 3 year old who barely remembered the UK. So, finding a setting that was small so as not to overwhelm him was important. Tweseldown is perfect, he loves each session he attends, has made friends, talks about them at home and looks forward to going. And the staff members are fantastic at supporting his growth, expanding his knowledge and understanding of the world and supporting him when his dad deploys!! A home from home setting.”
