St Andrews Playcentre is currently dedicated to running the SPACE programme.
SPACE is a programme aimed at mainly first time parents and babies enrolling between the ages of 0-3 months. Parents and Babies meet weekly for 30-40 weeks in a relaxed, baby friendly environment.
Sessions run for up to 2 1/2 hours and include:
- opportunities for parents to meet, get to know each other and gain support.
- playtime with age-appropriate equipment that supports infants learning and development.
- discussions and information on relevant child development and parenting topics.
- an introduction to rhymes, music and books for infants.
Experienced and trained facilitators run the weekly sessions, along with a support person. Facilitators have Playcentre diploma qualifications and have completed an extensive SPACE Facilitators Training programme.
