Welcome to Hartfield Playschool

Ours is a community playschool, which was founded by a group of local mums in 1965. The playschool is located in its own premises in the delightful village of Hartfield. Being in the old railway station building, we offer a unique and enduring setting which is bursting with history and boasts exceptional, all weather, outdoor space and facilities. Ensuring your child gets the very best start in life.

"Nurturing confidence by learning through play, in a happy, safe and caring environment"
Our Ethos

Our setting accepts children from the age of 2 until statutory school age, we have the capacity for 24 children per session, and follow the current EYFS (Early Years Foundation Stage) guidelines. Each child is appointed a key person (from our staff team), who builds a personal relationship with that child, a relationship that develops along their playschool journey, whilst observing them and recording their work and achievements within the Early Years Foundation Stage. We are proud to report our most recent Ofsted inspection was Good - with outstanding aspects.

Our History

Hartfield Playschool was founded by a group of mums in 1965. Our premises is the Old Station Building, which offers fabulous, historic surroundings for our children.


Our Facilities

Situated on the edge of Hartfield village, we overlook beautiful countryside across fields to the River Medway.


Our Approach

The children learn through play, including painting, construction sets, sand/water play, play-dough, cutting/glueing, puzzles, trains/cars, books, the home corner and dressing up.


Having had both my daughters attend Hartfield Playschool, I could not recommend it highly enough....Melanie Card.
