Welcome to the Out of School Network


Sheffield Out of School Network has changed it's name to About Play.  Our aim is  to promote and enable the provision of high quality play opportunities for children and young people and to raise awareness of the importance and benefits of play.

We support organisations and individuals to develop and sustain quality inclusive childcare provision and provide people with the skills and the resources to facilitate high quality play.     

About Play is closing down on Thursday 9th June.
