Welcome to Buckden Pre-School Playgroup

We are a small and friendly village Pre-School Playgroup located in the heart of Buckden. Founded in 1969, we are a member of the Pre-School Learning Alliance and also a registered charity. Easily accessible from the A1, we are ideally located for children not only from Buckden but surrounding villages too, and have ample parking.


We are open Monday to Friday 9-3, so you are able to use your full 30 hours childcare funding with us if you eligible, and we welcome children from two years old upwards. 


Our aim is to provide a warm and welcoming environment where you and your little ones feel a valued part of our Pre-School community.

Our Facilities

Located within the Village Hall, our purpose-built facilities include a light and airy playroom, covered outdoor play area and cosy quiet room for registration, reading, story time and generally more peaceful activities. We overlook the play park and are situated within close proximity to the Library which means we can easily and frequently enjoy these facilities alongside our in-house activities.
