Play Service

Adventure Play

Held at the Playspace, our open access play sessions are open to the local children, young people and their families during term-time. Our timetables are designed with input from children and young people who meet once every 6 – 8 weeks for planning meetings.

This is an open access adventure playground, which means that children are free to come and go as they please, within the rules of reasonable behaviour. Children will be supervised by our experienced staff team while they are on site, staff will ensure that children will be safe to take part in the wide range of activities that we offer and can play freely without fear of bullying. Some activities have carefully controlled degree of risk, to help children to learn through play without danger. Please come in and see for yourself.
