Come and join us for one of our sessions! We're open seven days a week and throughout term times and school holidays. We are always listening to feedback from our families so if you think there’s something missing from what we are offering let us know and we’ll see what we can do.

For our latest opening times please take a look at our October, November and December timetables.

Overview of sessions 

  • Family Play

We are open on weekdays, weekends and during school holidays to deliver sessions for the whole family and offer a variety of activities in this time depending on the children booked in – art, cooking, activities indoors and outdoors etc. 

  • Cooking Club 

Children are encouraged to develop independence and social skills whilst learning to cook and manage basic food hygiene. There is currently a waiting list for this group, if you'd like to find out more or put your child's name on the list please email [email protected]

  • Music Club

This group aims to help children gain some independence and have a chance to socialise. They will start the group with a snack which they can help prepare and eat together, followed by a fun music making session, with support from Berkshire Maestros, and then some time to play. There is a waiting list for this group so if you'd like to find out more please email [email protected] 

  • LEGO Club

A session for the whole family to enjoy building kits or free building, with different challenges to encourage thinking and working together. Some of the team are also trained to be able to deliver LEGO Therapy to those who may benefit.

  • Minis

We run a session for under 5s at the centre every other Tuesday, as well as an external session in Reading every Wednesday. We also support other organisations with their support for under 5s and are able to offer home visits to individuals who may struggle to make it to our other sessions. If you'd like more information about any of our services for children under 5 please email [email protected] 

  • Short Breaks 

Short breaks are respite sessions for children to gain some independence and have some fun, and for parents to have a couple of hours break. These currently run once a week during school holidays and are only available to West Berkshire families due to the way they are funded.

Outside of the times listed on our timetables we are also able to offer exclusive use of our facilities for birthday parties, group hire and school hire. Just get in touch by emailing [email protected] or calling 01635 285170 to find out more.
