With the colder weather approaching please remember to come dressed to play outside during Play & Learn.
We are very lucky to have an extended garden that we intend to use throughout the winter. The doors from the playroom will be kept open during the sessions and would like all families to play both outside and inside.
Play & Learn is a popular session and gets very busy. If families don't use all of the play space we will have to limit numbers attending this session, which would be a shame.
Riverview Children's Centre works in collaboration with Meadow Children's Centre in Stoneleigh. Sarah the manager at Meadow has very kindly said she will reserve spaces for Riverview families to attend their sessions.
