A Great Place To Meet

St Luke's Play and Stay groups provide a lovely opportunity for new mums, dads, carers or grandparents to meet with like-minded people and give their little-ones an opportunity to make new friends in our safe and welcoming environment.

The stay and play groups are organised and run by our former nursery manager, Mrs Pam Ward, who has over 30yrs experience working with children.

What Happens At A Typical Session

People normally arrive around 9:00am, as you arrive you will be welcomed by Pam and the various volunteers supporting her. There will be other mums/nannies/childminders/dads there with their children too.

The Play and Stay group normally lasts for an hour and a half, sometimes 2 hours. Part way through the session a cup of tea and a biscuits are available for adults free of charge and juice and biscuits are provided for the children free of charge.

If you would like to have a chat with Pam or a look around nursery or pre-school then you can contact us by email or telephone to arrange an appointment with a member of staff who will show you around and answer any questions you might have.
