About Us

Shetland Pre-School Play (SPP) is a voluntary organisation, which was founded in 1972 and is the representative body for Shetland voluntary sector pre-school groups. We are here to lend support and to offer advice on a variety of topics from play provision to legislation, as and when required. SPP receives the majority of it's funding from the Shetland Islands Council enabling us to employ fieldworkers and admin support on a part-time basis.

We also run training courses and workshops, provide two toy libraries, supply publications and also produce a regular newsletter.

The toy libraries are open to under-fives groups who wish to take out membership. One toy library specialises in equipment to support children who have additional support needs requirements and is, in addition, open to parents with a child with these needs.

As like all voluntary sector groups, we have to fundraise to provide part of our budget and to help sustain and extend the service we already provide.

We work closely with all local childcare agencies to represent group's interests and views, to keep up to date with new legislation and to help promote a multi-agency approach to childcare.
