Uplands Playgroup Stroud


About us

What We’re All About

Uplands Playgroup Stroud is a small but busy community playgroup that offers a pre-school setting for children aged 2 years 9 months up to school age. We also run a weekly Parent & Toddler group for younger children. We have been serving the community for many years, celebrating our 50th Year Golden Anniversary in 2018.  We support children to grow and aid transition into school.

Uplands playgroup is at the heart of the community. Parents, grandparents, carers and local childminders are all welcomed as part of the playgroup ‘family’. We pride ourselves on providing excellent care for our whole family, and that includes the grown ups!

Friendships that last a life time begin at Uplands Playgroup.


Toddler Group

We are currently reviewing our toddler group and forming a plan for the future. The Friday afternoon session remains closed for the time being and we will inform families of any changes via the website and our Facebook group - Uplands Playgroup Events.


Covid-19 Updates

As Restrictions have now eased we are asking families to follow the latest guidelines on isolation in the event of a positive case within the household. We are limiting the amount of people in the building and any visits to playgroup must be by appointment. 

In the event of a child being unwell we advise you keep them home. If they present with any of the symptoms of Covid-19 - high temperature, new continuous cough, loss of taste or smell, cold and flu like symptoms - they should take an LFT or be taken for a PCR test and stay home until they receive a negative result. For further information please check with the playgroup staff.
