Stay and Play is an enjoyable social event: your child plays with other children; you get to meet other parents, carers and child minders.
The accent is on fun: activities range from water and sand-play to arts and crafts, story-telling, music, song and rhyme, outdoor games, and – especially popular – a messy play area.
The sessions also have a serious side: children expand their horizons and learn important social skills; parents and carers can find out how to help their children with their learning. They can also pick up information about useful services, such as family support and welfare benefits. Registered child carers can get guidance on parenting.
The sessions cost £2 each and take place from 10am to 12 noon on Tuesdays, Wednesdays and Thursdays. A healthy snack is provided.
