About Us

Rainbow Stop Playgroup is based beside the Bowls Club in Markethill. It is open for children aged three and four years old. The Playgroup has a number of free places available for children in their immediate pre-school year.

We aim to provide each child with a high quality play based learning experience suited to their interests and needs.

We are registered with Armagh & Dungannon Health & Social Services Trust. Our Early Years Social Worker visits regularly and carries out an annual inspection. We are a member of Early Years - The Organisation for Young Children and follow their code of practice. We follow the Curricular Guidance for Pre-School Education.

All our staff are qualified Childcare and Education and we have an Early Years Specialist who supports our work. The Playgroup provides a happy, secure Environment. It is structured to stimulate learning skills and imagination through teaching, creative play and physical activities thereby encouraging children to achieve their full potential educationally, physically, socially and emotionally.
