In October 2014, Mordiford Dragons celebrated 20 years at Mordiford school under the management of Liv Moss and her team. The Dragons were created after a request from Brian Maggs, who was head at the time, to keep a play group going. Liv scouted round for small donations to reopen the group in the old school house. With the help of Lisa Rickson and Val Bardo, the group started for just one morning a week. The group now supports 5 staff and is open Tuesday to Friday term time only, from 8.45 to 2.45, with a toddler group on Mondays from 9 - 11a.m. The most recent Ofsted rated the group as GOOD with confident, happy, and well-behaved children, and staff having a good knowledge and understanding of Early Years.
The group is a registered charity and has a strong committee of parents who help to organise and fund raise when necessary.
Bookings are now being taken for September 2015 and beyond!
