345 Springfield has exclusive use of an idyllic setting in The Grove, on the edge of Alexandra Park. The indoor space is warm and colourful: wonderful displays of the children’s work cover the walls. There is a cosy book corner with beanbags and chairs, a delightful playhouse with a very well equipped kitchen and plenty of room for table and floor-based activities. In addition to the activities available every day, such as playdough, drawing, painting and sand play, a special activity, which might be baking, woodwork or a seasonal craft activity, is offered at each session. Children also have access to a wide range of construction kits and toys for imaginative play: a castle, a farm, and a fire station, to name but a few.

Springfield is blessed with exceptional outdoor space. As well as a beautiful lawn, which is perfect for active games, there is a paved area for bikes and buggies, which can be used all year. There is a huge sandpit and even a rowing boat at the bottom of the garden, which is a springboard for all sorts of imaginary adventures! The children have some outdoor play even in the depths of winter, and in fine weather entire sessions are held in the garden.


Morning: 9:00-12:00
Afternoon: 12:30-15:30

There are AM and PM sessions Monday to Friday. Children can stay for full days
(with packed lunch) on Mondays, Tuesdays and Thursdays.
