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. 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.
Please see our current daily timetables below:

This group gives you the opportunity to meet other families and play together in a safe and stimulating environment.
For children up to 3 years old. This group provides you with the opportunity to engage and play alongside your child. Our aim is to encourage reflective parenting, and for parents to learn more about their child’s interests by thinking about how their child is developing and communication.
There is an opportunity to be filmed with your child in the session, which is a helpful way to consider your child’s play and interaction from a different perspective. For parents, this group is also a platform to share your experiences with staff and other families, increasing your confidence in parenting.
This group runs twice a week, at Pen Green and Kingswood. Please check our timetable for current days and times.
