Sessions are most suitable for 5-12 year olds, but all ages are welcome. Under 5s must be accompanied by an adult at all times. Parents are welcome to stay if they wish. Children over 5 are able to attend independently, but we require a registration form to be completed by an adult at the 1st session they attend.
Sessions vary depending on the site, the weather and what the children want to do that day. Sessions usually get messy so we recommend old clothing and dressing suitably for the weather. All our sessions are outdoors and most do not have access to toilet facilities.
Play sessions are not a substitute for childcare and it’s the parent’s responsibility to make arrangements with their child regarding pick up/permissions to leave site etc.
If children require additional support to access the sessions, we offer the inclusion project. Forms can be completed online for this service & a member of the team will be in touch with the family to arrange support. https://www.wrexham.gov.uk/service/childrens-social-care/play-and-youth-support-team
