Stay & Play Sessions at Hampden Children’s Centre and St Pancras Community Association


In the first three years of life the brain is growing and changing faster than it ever will again. At times during the first year of life a million connections are forming every single second in your baby’s brain.

We all know about the importance of ‘5 a day’ and that your child’s body grows better when you give the child good food. In the same way, your child’s brain grows better when you do five simple things that feed their growing brain: Respond • Cuddle/Engage • Relax • Play • Talk

In this post we look at Respond:


“I feel very scared if I get no response from you. When you look at me with love in your eyes I feel safe. Your voice helps me to feel safe. Being close to you helps me to feel safe. ”


Respond & Being Outdoors

Being outdoors and in nature allows your child to respond and be curious.
