Little Sweet Peas is a monthly drop-in SEN playgroup for children between 0-5 years old and their accompanying parents and carers to attend. The sessions are focused on play activities for you and your little one to join in with. There will be elements of messy play, art activities, nursery rhymes. music and sensory stories! These are followed by lunch and refreshments with the other parent carers.

BDCPS are there to run and support with our team of experienced staff and volunteer playworkers, giving you the opportunity to meet and chat with other parent carers, as well as seek advice and support from the BDCPS team. It is an informal and relaxed environment, helping to give you the level of support you need, with a cup of tea, biscuits and a tasty lunch thrown in too!

We have 2 monthly sessions held in Bedford Borough and Central Bedfordshire. Our first session of the month takes place at the Child Development Centre, Kempston. This happens on the first Tuesday of the month. The second is held at The Hub located next to Ivel Valley Secondary School in Biggleswade. This takes place on the third Wednesday of the month. Both are term time only – however we do put on a variety of additional Little Sweet Peas and family sessions throughout the year – particularly in the summer holidays.

The cost of Little Sweet Peas is just £3 per adult – children can come along for free! You do not need to book as it is a drop-in session, but if you can let us know if you are intending to come, we are always grateful!
