About us

The Hollies Pre-school, formerly Hollies Playgroup, was opened in September 1976 by a group of Poynton mums. They happened to be teachers and when they could not find a playgroup in Poynton where they felt their children would develop within an ordered group during the very important pre-school years decided to start the playgroup.

The Hollies quickly grew, as other parents wanted their children to benefit from this well-run group, where each child was encouraged to develop their abilities and become more confident and independent.

We are registered charity and committee run. We have a management committee and a fundraising committee.
We are situated on a school site and have both preschool and school children attending the afterschool club.
