Grandchildren & Christmas in later life                                     Archive


Where to take the grandchildren this Christmas?  

Try your local Early Learning Centre and raise money for charity  

Early Learning Centre is appealing for little helpers across the UK to help turn their stores into a Christmas wonderland. From now until Christmas Eve, children can indulge their creative talents by decorating their very own Christmas Star to raise money for the NSPCC.

Kids can get as messy and artistic as they like with glitter pens, cotton wool and lots of other ELC arts and crafts materials. For each star specially decorated, Early Learning Centre will donate 10p to the NSPCC  



Star templates will be available in store for children to decorate during Playtime or they can be used at home. Once complete, the festive stars will be hung from the ceilings in store for all to enjoy!  

Early Learning Centre have been inviting children to help to decorate their stores for three years now, and this year the proceeds are going to a worthy and important cause.  

Playtime sessions are held Tuesday morning in high street stores from 9.30-11am *. Debenhams concessions hold sessions all day every Tuesday and our 3 out of town stores have playtime all day, every day.

*Times may vary contact your local store for details
For your local store call 08705 352 352 or search on
