Old Rayne Playgroup operates from the St Lawrence Hall in Old Rayne and has been serving the local community since January 1975. 

We are a friendly and caring group offering the very best in early years education to children aged from 2 to 5 years old. We are a preschool and ante-preschool playgroup and follow the same curriculum as preschool nurseries. 

We are a member of Early Years Scotland and are registered with Aberdeenshire Council to provide commissioned places. Along with funded places we also have places for eligible 2’s and self funded places for 2.5 year olds. Within our playgroup session we also run a 2’s group on Mondays and Tuesdays.

We have strong links with Old Rayne Primary School and other schools in the surrounding area. We support the Old Rayne Community Association (ORCA) in fundraising events in the village.

As of August 2019 we will be extending our hours to 8.30am-1pm. See more information in Session Times.
