COVID-19 UPDATE

We're back! In line with the current government road map, SCPA is running our hugely popular, Pop-up play events and we are all set to host Play Day 2021! Unfortunately, we are not yet able to run our usual play schemes, but check out our facebook page for more updates as we work to bring you more play, that's as safe as possible.

SOUTHAMPTON CHILDREN'S PLAY ASSOCIATION

Creating free play experiences throughout Southampton

 

WHO WE ARE

Our Roots

We opened our doors for the first time in 1973. SCPA began with a group of parents from the local community and a vision, a vision of creating free, accessible play schemes. We are proud to maintain the grass roots we have come from and continue to operate free play schemes throughout the city of Southampton that are open access, inclusive and community minded. We are a registered, non-profit organisation. Charity number: 266109

 

WHAT WE DO

SCPA is always working to promote play.

ACCESSIBILITY

At SCPA, we believe in every child's right to play. That's why we're proud to support all children with additional or differing needs. We provide training to all of our staff in Autism awareness, as well as offering a variety of accessible activities and play equipment, including sensory play. We also offer pre-session tasters, if you or your child are feeling apprehensive about joining us! Just give us a call to arrange and we will open our scheme to you and your child, before we open for general access, to give you both a chance to get a sense of what we offer and how we work. If you feel there is any other way we can support your child, please ask, and we will do our best to accommodate.

 

"Children need the freedom and time to play. Play is not a luxury. Play is a necessity."
