About us

Broughton Pre-School Playgroup is a not for profit charity that is the only pre-school setting in the village of Broughton. Our mission is to give the children in our care the best possible start to their educational journey in a nurturing environment that welcomes and includes every child and their families.

Staff within Broughton Pre-School work to the highest standard to give each child an individual level of support, guidance and care. Without donations and committee-based fundraising, it is not possible for Broughton Pre-School to continue to open and it is often not possible to purchase tools and equipment for the children to use in their activities and learning sessions.

What do we want?

In our latest Estyn inspection, where our overall outcome was rated as ‘good’, the area of IT was noted as lacking and developments of children’s IT skills was an improvement that was discussed as an area for future consideration.

We would therefore like to raise money to purchase 2 tablet devices and the accompanying software to enhance the learning experiences of the children. Two tablet devices will bring an interactive element to our songs, games and cognitive development, plus allow staff to connect with parents and caregivers easily electronically.

Who is this for?

The children who attend Broughton Pre-School Playgroup will benefit from this purchase. There are two groups of children which when combined result in around 40 to 50 children who would have access to the tablets.


2 x Amazon Fire Kids tablets with kid-proof case (1 x pink and 1 x blue) @ £99.99 each

Fire 7 Kids Edition Tablet, 7" Display, 16 GB, Blue Kid-Proof Case

Total = £199.98


If we're fortunate enough to raise more than our target, then we would like to purchase a further two tablets so each group of children can have the use of two tablets. 


Every penny counts towards our goal and we would love to be successful in even raising enough money to purchase one tablet. Our children will benefit greatly from this purchase should we be successful, and having IT equipment safely available for use in games, activities and creativity will add so much to our already fantastic setting. The majority of our fundraising proceeds are invaluable for keeping our setting up and running with little left for big purchases such as these. Any amount can help Broughton Pre-School Playgroup explore technology and launch us into the IT world!
