Dad and baby reading a book

Castle Lane is inviting parents and carers to ‘stay and play’ with their child at Castle Lane as part of a drive to encourage a greater understanding of the work they do with children at the nursery.

Co-owner Harriet Gray said “We’re inviting parents and carers to come and spend a couple of hours with their child here at Castle Lane, so that they can see more of what we do day to day.

“They might choose to sit and read with us to understand more about how we support literacy within the nursery and how that can cascade back at home. Or if their child is in pre-school, it can often help to learn more about our work on school readiness.”

“Whether their child is in the baby, toddler, tweenie or pre-school room, there’s something for everyone to come and get involved in.”

Future plans include sharing more about mathematics and imaginative play within the nursery setting.

Who can attend the stay and play sessions?

The stay and play sessions are open to all parents and carers with a child already attending any of the rooms at Castle Lane.

Sessions may only be taken on the days their child attends the nursery.

Is it free to attend the stay and play sessions?

Yes, there is no charge to come along to the stay and play sessions. Just get in touch with the office to book yourself in.
