COVID 19 - all Children's Centres are currently closed.  We will review the dates for future Chat and Play sessions as the situation develops.

Do you have concerns about your child that you would like to chat about with a friendly local expert?

Book on to a Chat and Play session in your local Children's Centre where you can have the opportunity to talk to a specialist with your child in a comfortable play environment.

Who is leading the Chat and Play sessions?

We are hosting a range of play sessions at our children’s centres across Kingston and Richmond, led by colleagues from Achieving for Children.

Yes, they are completely free of charge for all parents.

These will be held at different children’s centres across Kingston and Richmond, running from January to July. Whether you are a Kingston or Richmond parent, you can attend a session in either borough. You can find further details of when the sessions will be running within the leaflet.

The sessions will be open for an hour and a half, giving you time to play and have a chat with one of the local experts.

You can come and chat with our local experts about any concerns you might have, they will be able to give advice and signpost you to further support, if appropriate. You can find out more about what each expert can offer you and how to book in the leaflet above.
