What we do
Family sessions online, in venues or local parks
Our free family sessions include interactive activities such as: singing, dancing, storytelling, creative crafts, phonics and games.

Online sessions last 30mins and often follow this routine:

Venues or Local parks
Due to covid19, we are not able to meet at Dagenham Library so we have moved into local parks such as: Mayesbrook Park, Parsloes Park, Old Dagenham Park, Barking Park, Goresbrook Park and The Chase.
During these drop-in sessions we invite children to engage in arts and crafts, and also physical games with equipment. Sometimes we bring the big parachute to add more fun to the session.
We have been producing informative handouts – available for free on our Resources section – covering different topics that are vital when parenting young children.
In 2020 we published our first Parenting booklet (also available on our Resources section).
We have a singing booklet that has been supporting families during sessions, especially if they are not familiar with all the lyrics.
Parenting kit - A first prototype of the parenting kit was designed and distributed to 40 families.
A second and improved parenting kit was distributed to 100 families.
We are currently developing new ideas to continue supporting families in our borough. We are open to collaborations.
