Stay and Play/Messy Play - Visions Oakham

**In line with government advice, Stay and Play/Messy Play is on hold during the coronavirus (Covid-19) outbreak.**

Stay and Play enables parents who may be:

  • isolated
  • experience language difficulties
  • have no open space to allow their child to play safely
  • find it difficult to meet and socialise with other families  and to relax away from home.

The play area enables children to learn new skills from an exciting range of both individual and group activities within a safe and welcoming environment, provided by our Early Years Community Practitioners.  The sessions also offers parents a vibrant, safe and welcoming space for children to run around freely.

These are drop-in sessions for all parents and carers with children aged 0-4 years to enjoy free activities and ideas of things to do at home. Come and meet other parents for a chat whilst you play with your  children. Sessions are FREE to all Rutland families registered with Visions Children's Centres, don't worry! you can register at your first session. Don't forget to wear old clothes, parents and children!! Older children welcome during School holidays.

Please ring 01572 758383 if you require transport to the session (Rutland Families only)

These spaces are designated for families to park in while attending an event/session at the Children’s Centre. The space must be vacated when you complete your event/session to allow other families to park there.

These spaces will be numbered, so you will need to remember which space you are parked in and confirm your registration number when you arrive at the Centre.
