These popular sessions are by Family Support Workers from St Paul’s Children’s Centre.

The purpose of the Stay and Play Family ‘Drop in’ sessions:

A drop in session for children aged 0-5 and their families to explore, play, learn and have fun together. Friendly experienced staff are available throughout the session to support and offer advice around topics such as Child Development, Health and Well-being, Finances, Free Nursery Places for 2 and 3 year olds and Training Opportunities. We would love to see you there!

How much does it cost?

There is a small donation of £1.00 per family per session.

Do I need to bring any food?

Coffee/tea is available to parents and is included in the £1.00 donation.  Please could you bring donations of fruit/healthy snack for snack time.

What will my child be doing?

We aim to provide a varied range of activities, including art and messy play.  We will also be involved in active movement and enjoy action songs.  You will have an opportunity to explore our wonderful garden.  From time to time we also have visits from Dragonbird Theatre and outings which are suggested by parents.
