Welcome to St Pirans Playschool
St Pirans Playschool opened in November 2006 and is registered with OFSTED to provide full day care for 30 children each session from the age of 2 to 5 years. We are registered to offer places under the Early Years Education Grant Scheme. This means that all children can have up to 15 funded hours per week beginning the term after their third birthday and some children of working parents will be eligible for up to 30 hours per week form this from September 2017. Children with 2-year-old funding status can also access their 15 hours with us. We also accept childcare vouchers and are signed up to the tax-free childcare scheme.

St Pirans Playschool is a non-profit making organisation with charitable status and is run by a voluntary committee, of mainly parents, which is elected each year at the AGM held in September/October.
Our setting aims to:
- provide high quality care and education for children below statutory school age;
- work in partnership with parents to help children to learn and develop;
- provide a safe, secure and stimulating environment;
- add to the life and well-being of the local community; and
- offer children and their parents a service that promotes equality and values diversity.
We are open during school term time with the dates being set by Cornwall County Council. Our five ‘staff training days’ are arranged to coincide with those of Delabole Primary School so as to cause least disruption to parents with children at both. We are open 8am – 4pm, Monday to Friday. We offer full day and/or morning and afternoon sessions.
