Drop-in sessions, such as ‘Stay and Play’ are a great way for families to meet each other and have a change of scene and activities. They are more flexible than a group – there is no expectation that parents/carers attend every week or get there for the start time. They can provide a relaxing way for parents to chat together, while their children play with other children and toys.




However, they also offer a great opportunity to share ideas with parents and carers in bite-size chunks, about how they can support their children’s learning through everyday activities. Perhaps the most significant aspect is encouraging each parent or carer to join in some of the activities with their child, with practitioners and parents sharing a simple but key idea about the activity.




Parents and children are invited to join in with songs and a story at some point during the session too, and even reluctant singers tend to join in in their own time.
