What We Do

Marble Hill Playcentres is a voluntary organisation and registered charity located in the London Borough of Richmond upon Thames.

Originally conceived by a group of parents, the Playcentres was opened by the Greater London Council in 1975. Control later passed to the London Borough of Richmond until massive budget cuts saw it transferred to the voluntary sector in 2000. In 2005 Marble Hill Playcentres became a charity.

Our overall goal at the Playcentres is to provide high quality play opportunities for children of all ages and abilities in a safe, stimulating environment. We believe that play is central to every child’s holistic development and we are committed to helping families achieve a greater level of play in their lives.

We achieve this by:
*Offering a range of play opportunities indoors and outside for children and young people of all ages and abilities.
*Enabling access to all activities for children with additional needs
*Engaging with adult stakeholders, supporting them to understand the intention and impact of play
*Providing a community space for local organisations
