Due to the high number of families wishing to access our Stay & Play sessions and the limited number of places available, it may be necessary to restrict the number of Stay & Play sessions that each family attends each week. This does not include playgroup for 2-3 year old or specialist sessions eg: Nattering Nippers, Baby Signing. Please note there is now a Stay & Play session every day of the week additional to playgroup and specialists session, to allow parents freedom to choose the most suitable day, however this does still mean some sessions are over booked! Booking of your place is essential to avoid disappointment and being turned away at the door.
