PRESTON Playgroup has gained a five star rating across the board in a recent inspection by the SCSWIS (Scottish Care and Social Work Improvement Scotland).

The inspection commended the Linlithgow playgroup for the excellent care given to the children, and praised it for providing a safe and secure environment, including a clean and bright playroom, and fully enclosed outdoor play area.

The playgroup, which offers a fun play setting for pre-school children, is based at the Longcroft Hall on Philip Avenue, and the report was all the more satisfying for staff and parents after the playgroup relocated last summer from the Rivaldsgreen Centre.

Playgroup manager Jill Doran said: “We are absolutely thrilled that the inspectors recognise the excellent quality of care provided by the playgroup. We work hard on planning themes and activities for the children to help them learn, develop and have fun through play, and have provided as much continuity as possible for them in what has been a difficult year.“
