A TODLERS' playgroup in London's deprived East End has scooped a top prize at a national childcare awards ceremony.

TheTower Hamlets Opportunity playgroup, which caters for 40 children at the 'Around Poplar' children's centre in Limehouse, picked up the Inclusive Practice accolade in the Nursery World awards at London's Hurlingham Club, celebrating the work of the country's very best childcare providers.
