Welcome to Playskill

Specialist Playgroup for Children with Physical Needs 


Playskill is a local charity that runs parent and child term-time groups for pre-school children with special physical needs. 

Groups are run by a skilled team, including a Pediatric Physiotherapist, Occupational Therapist and Speech and Language therapist.

We are based in Watford and Hemel Hempstead, Hertfordshire, and welcome interest from all local areas, including Three Rivers, Dacorum, St. Albans and Bushey.  If you are local, but outside of these areas, please do email us to confirm whether you are within our radius.

Playskill is free to families (siblings always welcome to come along too) all we ask is a donation towards our refreshments if you are able.

We take children aged between 1 and 5 years but we do have a waiting list, so please contact us as soon as possible to register your interest
