Jonathan Page Play Centre
We welcome all children from the age of 4 up to their 13th birthday from all schools, so it's a great place for your child to make new friends in a safe, stimulating and, above all, fun environment. Your child can choose between structured activities and free play opportunities which take place indoors and outdoors ranging from arts and crafts, board games, table football, ball games, pool table, role play, a wide range of toys and books and much more. The secure outdoor area has a multi-use games area, football pitch, go-kart track, activity climbing frames and a Learning Lodge which enables the children to spend plenty of time in the fresh air no matter what the weather is like. Our qualified and DBS checked playworkers understand the importance of play, taking a keen interest in each child’s development, providing fun activities which meet each child’s social, physical, intellectual, creative and emotional needs.
Caring for your children after school in our After School Club We offer a friendly and relaxed environment for your child to enjoy after the school day. We know and understand that most children are hungry straight after school. This is why we provide a healthy snack sat at a table so everyone can socialise and catch up. The children help clear up and are encouraged to try new foods. After their snack, the children play with our vast range of toys, get creative at the craft table, play outdoors, and generally have lots of fun with their friends until they are collected by their parents/guardians. Our team has regular feedback sessions with the children talking about ideas for future topics, what they enjoy and what they don’t do that the team can plan effectively. Hours The After School Club runs from 3.15pm to 6pm Monday to Friday during term time.
Prices £8.50 per child per session

Holiday Playschemes Whether your child wants to come and join us for half a day, only on some days or the entire school holidays, we offer a wide range of activities that will ensure that your child has lots of fun at each and every visit. Our friendly and experienced team of Playworkers ensure that every day is bursting with fun activities for every child. No matter what time your child arrives with us, they will be greeted with a smile, made welcome and are able to relax and play straight away. At about 9.30am, we have a morning meeting where we go over the safety rules and any news that the children or staff would like to share. We tell the children which adult-led crafts are available, and any special events and activities that are coming up. After the meeting the children are free to play. We provide healthy snacks in the morning and afternoon and water is available for the children throughout the day, however you will need to provide a packed lunch for the picnic-style lunch, which is followed by organised team games for all. After team games, it’s free play again. A light snack is served at 4pm, followed by more free play until they are collected.
