We'd love for you to 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.

We require all families to complete an assessment form before their first visit, you will then be told what sessions you can access and issued with our timetable. Below is a brief overview of some of the sessions we offer.

Overview of sessions 

  • Family Play

We are open on weekdays, weekends and during school holidays to deliver sessions for the whole family. At these sessions we offer a variety of activities depending on the children booked in which may include 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 but 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] 

  • After School Activities

A session for the whole family to enjoy taking part in various activities such as crafts, cooking, LEGO, games and more, and a brilliant opportunity to unwind after school.

  • Minis

We run a session for under 5s at the centre every Tuesday, as well as an external session in Reading on the second Wednesday of every month. 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 with friends. 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.
