For Families


We offer play based activities which are designed for parent/carers and their children from pre-birth up to age 4 years. Our fun and engaging activities support play and interaction during the early stages of child development, and share key messages and ideas for playing, talking and reading.

Our aim is to support parents/carers to increase their confidence in supporting their child’s wellbeing and developmental needs in their early years. Using a range of low cost, sustainable playful materials, resources and activities to support speech language and communication.

Settings can choose from a ‘menu’ of activities, and we will consult with parents/carers and practitioners to identify any areas that they may wish to focus on. Discussions will inform a programme of activities for up to eight weeks, delivered once per week in the setting.

What to expect during a session?



Our playworkers will provide and set up all the required resources for each themed session. Before the session begins, we will help everyone to feel welcome and comfortable in the space. Together with parent/carers our playworkers will facilitate a range of play based activities, whilst offering support to parents when required. Our sessions can last between 1 - 2 hours and during this time we ask that parents remain with their children during the session.

For Practitioners


We want to take a connected approach, so collaborating with key professionals is important for us to develop relationships and compliment the work that others are already doing in their areas. We offer workshops and ongoing support for practitioners to help them build their capacity to support families with young children and their play needs.
