Vision and Mission


We at Malvern Playgroup recognise the importance of the Early Years for laying a firm foundation for future learning and success. We know and understand that when young children play, they are learning at the same time. Young children learn from a kaleidoscope of experiences, both adult-led and from the outcomes of actions or interactions that they have initiated.

Drawing on 150 years of heritage from Malvern College, we envisage our youngest children developing their individual strengths and employing a personalised approach of active, play-based learning. Our College Ethos and Core Values are focused on developing life-long learning and encouraging each child’s curiosity, kindness, resilience, self-awareness, open-mindedness, collaboration, risk-taking, independence, integrity, and humility. We provide a secure, organised and innovative environment for children to engage in a balanced and holistic programme.

We do all this in the belief that your child will be more than ready for a smooth transition into a Pre-School environment. Our Early Years staff are experienced, caring and passionate. Early Years practitioners will provide a supportive and stimulating learning environment where children feel safe and happy, providing the optimal opportunity to thrive and learn. We believe that every child is precious and unique, ready to shine and achieve his or her dreams. Here at Malvern Playgroup, we believe that each child is greatness waiting to happen!
