Frequently Asked Questions - Parent and Child Groups and Support

The Group Programme at Pen Green and Kingswood offers families a wide range of activities, courses and support. Some groups are for you to come to with your children, others are just for adults.  Please see our group timetable for more information.

All groups at Pen Green and Kingswood are open to all families living in the local community. We define our community as:

  • all households in Northamptonshire County Council designated postcodes
  • the streets and postcodes that have historically been part of each centre’s local community
  • all families attending our nursery, early years provision and after school club

Families living beyond our designated community area are also encouraged to attend their local children’s centre.

In some situations we can provide a crèche for your child/children depending on the group you wish to attend. Crèche places are limited so if you would like a place, please speak to the group leader.

You do not have to book for any of our daily groups or drop-in spaces.  Some groups are busier than others, for example baby massage, and we only have a limited number of places.  Some of our groups are appointment only.  Please see the group timetable for more information.

If you would like to book one of our shared spaces (water room, soft room, snoezelen) then please contact us to book.

Our shared spaces (i.e. the water room, sensory room, soft room and Beach) can be booked by telephoning reception.
