Free afterschool and school holiday play sessions
Free play sessions at Bandley Hill, Pin Green and St. Nicholas Play Centres for Stevenage families who pay Council Tax to Stevenage Borough Council.
All children and young people who use our play centres must be registered. The registration form provides essential information about the child, including emergency contact details of their parent/carer. This ensures that play staff are aware of all the children’s support needs, that it meets standards set by Ofsted and that parents or carers can be contacted quickly in the unlikely event of an accident or emergency.
We are using a new registration system, so if you have already registered your child you will need to do it again using the new system.
You will need to fill in a form for each child you are registering. Once you have registered you can access all of our play centres and events.
If parent or carer contact details change (for example due to a house move or a change of telephone number), it is important that you let a member of staff know immediately so we can update your records.
