PLAY AND SUPPORT GROUP: Mortlake
In addition to support in the home, Home-Start Richmond, Kingston & Hounslow runs a weekly, term-time Play and Support Group in Mortlake. The aim is to provide parents and children with a safe, nurturing and creative environment that will foster children’s development and confidence through playing, exploring and experimenting. Experienced staff members are available to answer questions around child development and accessing other services. Learning activities and a healthy snack are provided.
Who can come to the Play and Support Group? Parents wishing to join should speak to their local Children’s Centre or call Home-Start Richmond, Kingston & Hounslow on 020 8487 8500. Please note that parents are responsible for their children at all times. The group is not intended as a drop-off facility for childcare and is aimed at parents, rather than nannies and childminders.
