Services Children Centre Services Babies And Children Play and Stay Stay and Play sessions provide an opportunity for socialisation for children 0-5 years of age and also for carers/parents to meet new people. Parents/carers are able to spend quality play time with their child without the distractions of home. Stay and Play sessions help children build self-esteem and confidence; they also help to build children’s social, emotional and communication skills. All of our Play and Stay sessions are now volunteer led and the more volunteers we have supporting us, the more sessions we can run. Check out your local Children Centres timetable for more information.
