At Play for All we aim to provide a secure, stimulating and fun environment that is welcoming and will encourage all children aged 2years 10months -11years to develop to their full potential.
We are committed to providing the highest standard of care in a fun atmosphere whilst actively promoting equal opportunities and continuing to provide effective learning opportunities for all children. Play for all is where children can discover, achieve and express themselves through active play and where parents/ carers feel confident to leave their child in safety.

“After researching children’s health as part of my degree, I found a growing concern of children fell into the category of Obese, having Asthma or type2 Diabetes. I found a contributory factor to this increase is reduced activity levels and the limit to which children can gain access to outdoor and physical play. In response to this research I developed the programme; Play for All.”
“After completing Playboard training in Top Skills and Top Sport, Out 2 Play, Food 4 Play and Active club workshops I gained further knowledge in the field of play and recognised the importance of play during childhood and the role I have in ensuring all children have access to play whilst in my care.”
