Stay and Play

Our ‘stay and play’ provides a safe, friendly and stimulating place for children under 5 and their parents or carers. The session runs between 9.30am to 11am, by Golborne & Maxilla staff and is funded by ourselves.

They are a chance for your child to play, learn and sing in planned sessions. As a parent you’ll benefit from the support of Holmefield House CC Family Engagement Officer who attends sessions regularly, our team and other parents, and the friendly social atmosphere. You’ll be able to support your child, watch them play and share problems with other parents and our team here. You will benefit from opportunities to visit our 2-3 and our nursery school provision.
