Stay and Play

Stay & Play is a FREE drop-in session run by Bright Start Islington, for mums, dads and carers to come and play with their children. 

It is time to have fun together and pick up tips on how to support your child’s learning and development.

What happens at Stay & Play?

Qualified early years staff set out a wide range of exciting activities to support all areas of children’s learning and development. Children are encouraged to do activities both indoors and outside, whatever the weather!

For most of the session children are free to choose which activities they would like to do with their parents/carers. Staff are on hand to help you get the most out of each activity.

Your child will have opportunities to access a wide range of activities which will enable them to:

  • Learn through play
  • Enjoy indoor and outdoor play
  • Make new friends
  • Develop social skills

Towards the end of the session everyone, adults included, help to tidy away activities. This is followed by our healthy snack time for children.

You can find the Bright Start timetables and registration forms on the Family Directory, Islington’s website or at the Golden Lane campus reception.
