The play service at St. Paul’s is provided from the ‘Venture’ building and surrounding play areas on the same site as the Children’s Centre and City Farm.
The name of the building came from when Malvern street had an amazing adventure playground that evolved in the 1970’s.
Holiday playschemes have been provided for the local children ever since, the adventure playground has sadly gone but we still believe in the importance of ‘play’ and enable the children to have the space and opportunities to enjoy choice, freedom to play, creativity and fun.
The after school Playcare service began in the 1990’s when ‘The Nest’ that was originally run by parents, moved from premises in Moseley to St. Paul’s. We are proud that it has achieved an ‘Outstanding’ rating from Ofsted in May 2017.
