St John's Nursery Playgroup

St John's Nursery Playgroup (Baker St) was founded by a group of Church members in 1965. In 1979 St John's opened another playgroup at Sunny Bank School, which transferred in 2008 to premises within Oakmere School, Chace Avenue. They both remain one of our most important services to the local community. The Church, through the Nursery Playgroups Board, has oversight of the management and finances.


The Playgroups provide the highest quality early years care and education. Children from all cultural and religious backgrounds play in a safe, supportive and stimulating environment.


Both Playgroups meet in cheerful, child friendly settings, with well equipped outside activity areas, enhanced at Oakmere by a large garden backing onto woodland. They are staffed by qualified and experienced professionals, and hold the Hertfordshire Quality Standards Award.


OFSTED has rated the Baker Street Playgroup as ”Good" and Oakmere Nursery Playgroup as "Good" in all areas, in recognition of the very high standards achieved.


St John's at Baker Street is for children from the term after they are 2.5 years. 

St John's at Oakmere School is for children from their 2nd birthday.
