Where to go
What to expect?
You will receive a friendly welcome into all of the centres. You won’t need to bring anything with you, but if your child is involved in messy play you may wish to bring a clean set of clothing to change into after the session.
All of the venues have toilets and disabled toilets, and are wheelchair accessible. They also have car parking and are on Peterborough bus routes.
The centre also has a variety of volunteering opportunities, from helping out with activities, to admin, gardening, and more. Contact them to see what is available.
Barnardo’s is committed to the ambition of improving outcomes and life chances for all children, young people and their families.
The core purpose is to ensure that all children have the best start in life and achieve positive outcomes. A key focus of Barnardo’s service is reaching children and families from within their local community to support with day to day needs and challenges.
The centres create an environment where children feel that:
- I like to interact with the adults around me.
- I am curious.
- I like to go to the park.
- I am beginning to communicate my needs with pointing and making attempts at some words.
- I like to show the family worker my toys when she visits.
All sessions and courses run by Barnardo’s are free:
Stay & Play (sessions):
Sessions provide a safe and stimulating learning environment in which parents/carers can play with their children, have fun and learn together whilst focusing on developing their child’s language, literacy and preparing their child for school. Suitable for toddlers to age 5.
Baby Time (sessions):
Providing a wonderful opportunity for you to help your baby to use their early senses to explore and develop their social skills in a relaxed and calm environment. Sessions provide time for parents/carers to make new friends, share their ideas or concerns and obtain information whilst gaining knowledge of their babies’ growth and development. Suitable from birth to walking.
Sensory Learners For children aged 0-5 years with complex needs, delivered jointly with Portage supporting parents to develop a quality of life and experience, for themselves and their young children, in which they can learn and play together.
