Youth Provision and Community Hubs.

Following the recent updates we have adapted our youth delivery. We are currently undertaking some detached youth sessions following NYA guidance across the Croydon and Kent boroughs. Please keep an eye on our social media platforms for up to date information and programmes.

Our community hubs currently continue to stay shut but we are planning to open these once restrictions allow. 

Online work

We will be continuing with our online programmes across our social media accounts and have had very positive feedback towards this. We thank you for continuing to support us and joining in with our activities. The online programme will work alongside our childcare and youth sessions. 

As always, we will continue to follow Government guidance and update accordingly. All of the above is subject to change if deemed appropriate.

Mission Statement

In these challenging times we are having to make difficult decisions and choices.

We at Play Place are aiming to open some of our doors to our youngest children where we offer Early Years provision. 

Everyone counts, our staff, children and families are all precious. We are working with families and our dedicated teams to make arrangements that we feel will work with the service we will deliver. 

Children will be welcomed in at our services, we will provide a happy place to play and learn in these unsettled times. We recognise that for some families now is not the the time and we will continue to stay in touch. 

We shall continue to work with requirements drawn down from government and will keep you posted with developments as they occur. 

Smile in the sunshine, stay safe.
