We run 3 neighbourhood play centres throughout the year. Stevenage children aged between 5 and 14 years of age can attend the play centres throughout the town. The service is free of charge and children can come and go as they please.
Please note that play centres / playschemes are for Stevenage residents only.
Many of our Play Centres also run parent & toddler groups during the day.
The council is proud of its services for children. It recognises the important benefits which play has for children and for family life.
