Visit Our Centres

Our unique and specialist Centres are located in the heart of London, Canada Water and in the North of England, Huddersfield close to the M62. Packed with innovative ideas to inspire best practice in EYFS & KS1, they are a vital destination for practitioners across the country. The Centres are open to visit free of charge throughout the year and you are welcome to call in if you are nearby, or if you are traveling quite a distance its best to phone ahead to make arrangements.

You will find a highly informative interactive environment to look around with ideas for your classroom, lots of display ideas and an exhibition of children’s work to inspire you – and an amazing Resource Shop with high quality, books, play resources and educational artefacts. We also have plenty of space to relax and light refreshments are available throughout the day in our cafes.
