The Playbus is a double-decker bus that has been fully converted into an early years play facility. We drive the Playbus to housing estates and public parks in East London to create enabling play environments for children aged 0-4 years old. Our play sessions provide a variety of resources and activities that support children’s early learning and development in all areas of the Early Years Foundation Stage. Playbus sessions typically run for two hours and include a fruit and vegetable snack. Our scheduled sessions run whatever the weather and are always free to attend!
During our Playbus sessions, parents and carers can find out more about the family support services that are available in the local area. Our team is very happy to signpost families to other services that may be of benefit to individual families, according to their needs.
We also have a smaller mini-Playbus that provides a similar service, with the focus on outdoor play.
