Welcome to Sunshine Playgroup

Sunshine is an independent playgroup in London in South Hampstead for babies, toddlers and children under the age of five. We offer a unique, fun and varied programme of parent and toddler classes as well as after-school activities and school holiday clubs for older children. They are: Pre-nursery classes, Art classes, and Cookery classes.

Sunshine was started by Agnieszka Siedlecka in 2002 and over the past 13 years, she has poured her heart and soul into the playgroup, building up a great reputation in the area and a loyal following of children and parents who return term after term. Agnieszka’s motto has always been “Small groups, big ideas” therefore the environment at Sunshine is intimate, friendly and relaxed. The purpose-built room and kitchen overlooking the garden are a huge advantage.

Why Sunshine is different

Unlike other playgroups, all of Sunshine sessions are kept to a maximum of 10-12 children per class. We believe that small groups work for the benefit of the children and help them feel more secure. There are always two teachers present.
The teacher can devote more time and attention to each child’s individual needs, thus creating an environment, which encourages both learning and personal growth.

Our regular classes are booked in blocks of 10-12, depending on the term, which allows the same group of children to meet together each week. This gives the children an opportunity to build relationships with other children/carers and with the teachers.



We welcome parents and carers to join in our classes and we take pride in the familiar and friendly environment of our playgroup. Tea/coffee and biscuits are provided to give them a little break from a busy life of looking after their little ones.

All of our staff know children and adults personally and take a great interest in the children’s development and progress. For more information about activities at Sunshine Playgroup in South Hampstead, please have a look at “Our Classes” and Sunshine Food Policy.
