We have highly trained and knowledgeable staff who can sign-post families to external services and support at all our Stay and Play sessions. All of our groups allow parents/carers to meet, share experiences and feel at ease whilst their children explore and play in our specialist, safe environment with trained staff.
We have a large amount of specialist toys on offer in our sessions – these can be borrowed by our families to try at home.
All our stay and play sessions are FREE of charge. Donations are very welcome, especially for tea and coffee.
