Active Play and Learn sessions are a fun way for children aged 0-5 years to play and share new experiences with their parents, grandparents or carers.
During each session we offer a range of carefully planned activities both indoors and outdoors to help stimulate children’s senses and imagination as well as aiding their development and well-being.
Activities on offer are all based around learning through play. They include opportunities for children to explore messy play, sand, water and mark-making. There is construction, creative play and quality toys and equipment for free play. It is a good idea to dress your child in suitable clothes that will not matter if they get messy in.
There is a safe area made available for babies and age-appropriate toys and resources such as treasure baskets, gyms and tummy time mats to encourage even the youngest of children to explore and learn through play.
Parents and carers are encouraged to take an active part in each session joining in with their child/children activities and support their learning.
There are rhymes and story time at the end of each session where children are able to sing, play instruments and share books to help develop their listening and language skills.
The sessions are run by Outreach Workers who provide a welcoming and relaxed environment for your child/children to play and learn and the opportunity for you to gain information, support and advice for all the family.
All sessions are free
You can leave your buggy in our covered buggy park which is at the entrance of the centre. We don’t allow buggies in the Centre for safety reasons. We have locks to secure your buggy, just ask at reception.
We have full nappy changing facilities at the centre which are clean and easy to use.
Stanwell Children’s Centre is a breastfeeding friendly centre. We will provide a private space for you to feed your baby and the staff will make sure you are comfortable. You can drop in at any time to breastfeed your baby.
You can bring food into the Children’s Centre where healthy eating is encouraged. We have a high chair and kitchen facilities.
We have parking at the side of the Children’s Centre and street parking is also available in Hadrian Way.
We are open Monday to Friday from 8.30am-4.30pm.
The Centre is a safe and secure place for your child to play. All children must be supervised by an adult.
You can get a cold drink during play and learn sessions.
We run two additional sessions: one at Stanwell Rose Community Centre every Tuesday and the other is at Stanwell Youth Centre Toy Library once each term. Please see the timetable for information.
The staff are really friendly and we will always help a first-time visitor to the Centre. Just call us and find out how we can help you.
We are open all year round. Please check our timetable for details of weekly sessions, courses and special events.
We usually close for a week at the end of August and between Christmas and New Year.
