Supporting young parents and families.
Young Parents’ Stay and Play group invites all parents and expectant parents aged 21 and under to join us for an opportunity to meet other parents and their children, to socialise, interact, play, learn and gain peer or professional support.
The group offers free soft play, baby massage sessions and the use of our sensory room along with weekly craft activities and baby play areas. We cater for all children aged five and under and also provide a snack and a drink.
The group will be welcomed by an experienced Family Support Worker who can offer advice and guidance or sign post to other services that may be able help to support young families.
Sessions run at Gardners Lane Children and Family Centre on Thursdays between 10 a.m. and 12 o clock.
The Parents with Prospects Parenting Programme can make up part of a set of qualifications aimed at parents, taking them through the journey of pregnancy and the early years of a child’s life.
The units build towards full qualifications at Award or Certificate level.
Lunch is provided and a creche is available for children aged 0 – 5 years of age will be provided.
The course will run for two hours between 12.30 p.m. -2.30 p.m. every Thursday (term time only).
