MASKK is a Playwork setting, and all our settings are designed and planned with the Playwork Principles and objectives in mind. For more information about the Playwork Principles please visit As well as supporting free Play and free choice, our team plan multiple activities each week, including baking, arts and crafts and more. MASKK works to the Early Years Foundation Stage Standards which means all our planned activities will have a link to learning outcomes for children under 6 years of age.The children have access each session to games and toys, role play, loose parts, tablets with limited internet access, and computer games. We  put children and their wishes first and so the children have free choice when it comes to the activities and can join in with what is planned or can chose something else. All the activity planning is done in partnership with the children and based on what they have asked for. During school holidays activities also include regular outings to local parks and green spaces as well as joining in with community activities.Places are limited and so to secure a place we ask that parents book 2 weeks in advance.
MASKK aim to be an inclusive setting and our team have experience and training to support children with a variety of additional support needs. If your child requires additional adult support or care please contact us to discuss these before making a booking. We provide specific sessions for children with special educational needs and disabilities via SNIPS – see for more information.

Alternatively we might be able to offer additional support at our playcare settings.
