When attending the play centre children will be able to engage in a wide range of play opportunities, many of which are listed below. Play staff will be on hand to support children when engaging in the activities if they require it but they will also encourage children to think for themselves wherever possible. Risk benefit forms have been completed for the activities that do carry an inherent risk, these forms are there to support children to take part in adventurous activities whilst at the same time keeping them as safe as possible.
We believe that children have a right to play and play is central to a healthy childhood. Due to increasing restrictions on children’s free time and space for playing, there is a need to compensate children by providing them with opportunities to experience everyday playful adventures similar to those taken for granted by previous generations.
In order to support your children to be more creative and playful we are asking that children who attend the afterschool play project bring a change of old clothes with them. This will enable staff to deliver more exciting sessions for the children whilst also supporting parents who come under pressure to keep school uniforms clean and tidy for the following day.
