Description

Who we are: 

The After School Club at KIDS Adventure Playground - Hackney is a place for disabled and non-disabled children to play together adventurously, creatively and safely.

The service is suitable for children between the ages of 6 – 18 years old.


What we do: 

The After School Club at KIDS Adventure Playground - Hackney provides the opportunity for stimulating, accessible, inclusive play on a closed access site.

Closed access means the site is securely fenced and all gates are locked whilst children are on site to keep them safe.

The playground is below Springfield Park on the edge of the Lea Valley Nature Reserve and gives many children their first taste of:

A space to play          

A place to make friends  

Learn to ride bikes  

   Find new places to explore     

   Watch trains

   Climb

 

Enjoy painting and creating

Have fun being themselves

Through free and structured play at the playground children build confidence, independence skills and have freedom of choice. They also shared the social experience with others. 

Although KIDS Adventure Playground - Hackney is a specialist playground for disabled children and young people, it is not exclusively for those with disabilities and welcomes all children.

This means, if appropriate, non disabled brothers or sisters can attend the service.  


The playground has purpose-built outdoor and indoor equipment. Children who attend are free to choose how they play in a setting that is welcoming, fun and supportive of their requirements.
