Play Services For Children
The Play and Youth Service is ambitious about promoting children's play in Nottingham. We are committed to supporting volunteers and community projects through the Nottingham Play Partnership and we aim to create a city where all children can have easy access to social, physical, creative, challenging and culturally appropriate play opportunities which help them learn and develop into healthy, skilful and confident individuals.
There are five Adventure Playgrounds and Play Centres in the city where children aged 5-14 years can play after school, on Saturdays and during the holidays. These centres employ staff who are trained to work creatively with children and who can facilitate play in a safe and secure environment. Click here to find out more about your local Play Centre .
Throughout the year we also run activities and clubs in different parks and centres, where children can have a fun time, be active, make new friends and develop their social skills.
A great way to get children up and about is through play. Organised games can be great fun, and are a good way for adults to get involved too,
That's why we've just launched Play4Life, but we need your support. By encouraging children to play as often as possible, you will be helping them to make a Change4life.
There is lots of advice available on how to support children to play indoors and outdoors as well as ways to keep them safe while they're burning off all that energy.
