About the ALL come out to Play! project


ALL come out to Play! is a session that helps children learn about respectful relationships and equality. It is delivered with humour, dancing and fun for all! There are songs and games and lots of exciting toys to play with. It is good for people who are still learning English as well. The session encourages girls to be strong and confident and boys to seek help when they need it – it has a message of equality and respect for everyone.

What to expect Participation! Participation! Participation! The fun-filled session runs for approximately 40 minutes and is loads of fun for children and adults. The sessions are very interactive and inclusive. We encourage dialogue between the children/presenter/parents/carers as different topics and themes arise and are explored. We encourage you to sit with your child and immerse yourself in the session too. The more involved you are, the more your child will engage and enjoy!
