Parent and toddler playgroup

If you're a parent in Saffron Walden or surrounding area and you've got little ones to keep entertained, join us on a Friday morning for our free baby and toddler playgroup!

Where: Rainey Hall at Dame Bradbury's School, Saffron Walden
When: Drop in between 8.30am and 10.30am any Friday in term time 

There's no need to book, just come along on the day. 

Free events

Every month we also run some fantastic events in partnership with local businesses. They are all free to attend, but we do ask that you please book in advance by emailing us at as there are limited places available. 

We will keep you posted, with new events and dates appearing on this page as they are confirmed. You can also email us anytime to ask about Dame Bradbury's events. 

We look forward to meeting you!


Childcare from the age of two

Do remember that we can take children into our pre-Kindergarten from the term they turn three (so if they turn three in March, for example, they can join us from January when they are still two years old). 

Our pre-Kindergarten class benefit from being in an educational environment, often mixing with the Kindergarten and Reception pupils too and getting used to time away from home in a safe, happy and inspiring environment.

If you'd like to talk to us about our Early Years provision, or take a look around our beautiful school, please get in touch. We offer full wraparound care from 7.30am to 6pm in term time.
