BIG Stay and Play is a weekly drop-in play session at West Hill Enhanced Children's Centre for children with disabilities, special needs and complex medical needs. It is aimed at children whose primary need is social and communication difficulties but all families are welcome to attend.
The sessions are aimed at parents and carers with their children aged 0-5 years.
The session provides:
- opportunities to make friends and socialise for parents, carers and children;
- support for parents through sharing experiences;
- the chance for children to explore their creativity; and
- advice on child development.
The play space is set up to offer a low distraction environment and is structured using a range of visual communication tools.
