Island House has hosted a playgroup for almost 40 years. The first children are now parents and even grand-parents sending their own children along.


Marina Betts is the current Playleader / manager, and Carmen Galea her deputy.

Together with their other staff and volunteers, they provide morning and afternoon sessions for pre-school children.


Monday to Thursday: Morning sessions 9am-12noon; Afternoon sessions: 12.30-3.30pm

Fridays only:             10am - 1pm


Many children are now funded by the government's free funded places scheme for 3 & 4 year olds. They meet in the Main Hall at Island House.
