what they say about our play clubs...

"I am separated from my husband and started taking Imogen to the Stay and Play Club at Serennu which started in February 2013 as it was my only contact with other adults.

At first I couldn’t turn around in the same room to get a coffee without her going hysterical at being left. Now I can even leave the room to go to the toilet alone without her causing a commotion. It’s actually the only place I can be with her and leave the room.

Other toddler groups were unsuitable for Imogen and it was difficult taking her there. Imogen is now so happy at Stay and Play and adores the Sparkle staff. It’s fantastic to have time every week to enjoy a coffee and a chat knowing that Imogen is safe and happy in the care of the Sparkle staff and volunteers”
