MYL offers a comprehensive and exciting programme of after-school and holiday playschemes throughout the year. We offer local children, up to age 13, the opportunities to enjoy open-access play, develop learning and connect with their communities, all within the safe and supportive environment of our adventure playgrounds.
Across our sites we provide climbing walls, zip-wires, swings and obstacle courses that encourage active and fulfilling adventure play. Alongside these, our modern sports facilities and pitches allow for development in sport, and our indoor facilities provide leisure activities and arts & crafts, for when the weather takes a turn for the worse.
We encourage young people to take an active role in the playgrounds, from devising games, to being part of our Junior PlayworkerScheme; this allows around 250 young people to volunteer at centres gaining valuable skills and experience that supports their personal development.
Such support from an early age lies at the heart of what MYL does, and its importance is confirmed by independent research (Let our children roam free). This concludes that play supports development, encourages learning, as well as providing confidence and skills that are essential for enabling young people in disadvantaged areas to reach their full potential.
All children that attend our play provisions are required to be registered with MYL, and our simple registration form can be found here. For any enquiries, feel free to visit one of our playgrounds, meet the teams working there, or contact us here.
