Fun, Friends & Family Support

Ray’s Playhouse is a charity that relies on donations to provide it’s daily stay and play sessions to families with young children. 

Our fully-trained enhanced DBS checked staff can also help you with a range of early years support services including:

  • Access to child and family health services
  • Access to a range of family friendly support services
  • Information on work, training options and childcare
  • Free baby massage courses 
  • Sport and themed outdoor sessions


Play sessions are themed with special indoor baby areas as well as our extensive outdoor areas for the busy toddler.  Our friendly, welcoming team are there to support everyone with their children and help them learn new skills and meet new friends in a safe environment. At every session we have a healthy snack time including a selection of fruit and vegetables for our young ones to enjoy.

In 2019 our purpose-built children’s centre was fully refurbished thanks to the incredible generosity of property developers St George and Howden Kitchens as well as other supporters of the Playhouse.
