We put the 'play' in playgroup to ensure our youngest students have fun while they learn. From stories and songs to hands-on sensory activities, our classes help to establish routines, build confidence and develop emotional, social, physical and language skills.

Please purchase an ESF apron when you check out - this will come in very useful for sensory time!


Our curriculum has been developed by experts in education and child development. The theme based curriculum is driven by age-appropriate learning outcomes to allow students to play and explore their surroundings whilst working towards key milestones. Playgroup exposes children to a range of enriching activities to develop their understanding of the world around them.

Through our playgroups, students will establish routines and learn how to interact with others as they explore and make new friends.

Students learn:

  • decision-making and problem-solving skills
  • independence 
  • self-confidence
  • speaking and listening skills

As our playgroup classes take place in ESF Kindergartens, ESF schools and the ESF Language & Learning Centre, they are an excellent opportunity for students to gain awareness and confidence in an international learning setting that will ease their transition to kindergarten.
