Early Years Hub

A friendly, welcoming space for Under 5s, parents, carers and childminders.

Our Early Years Hub (EYH) welcomes all parents, carers and under 5s.   It is in the centre of Whittington Park, opposite the astro turf pitch and offers the following services:

Childminders’ Drop-in
A friendly drop-in session for childminders and children they’re looking after.  A great place to meet and share ideas and information with other childminders and where children can play.
Wednesdays and Thursdays, 9am – 12.00pm
Cost: £1 per adult

Stay and Play’ Drop-in for parents and carers with children aged 0-5 managed by Sam Wakelin, our experienced Early years Co-ordinator.
Wednesdays and Thursdays, 1.00pm – 3.30pm
£1 per family.

“‘Stay and Play’ is very important. It gets the children ready for nursery.  It gets them used to playing with other children.  I come all the way from Essex Road cos there’s no ‘Stay and Play’ where I live.  It’s really important they get to mix and learn to share toys so when they go to school it’s easier.  All my daughters went to Stay and Play and they fitted in really easily when they started school.” Grandparent










Sam is happy to provide information to parents, carers and childminders about services and other activities for children and families.
