Keir Hardie Children’s Centre is the place to come if you live in Canning Town or Plaistow and have a child under the age of 5. We offer a range of exciting play activities that parent/carers and children can enjoy together –  from messy play with sand, water, cornflour, paints etc to storytelling and a singalong.


Maybe you have concerns about your child’s eating habits or language development, about breastfeeding or weaning. Come to one of our regular health sessions delivered by trained professionals.

Looking for a childminder, a nursery or a school? We can show you what is available locally.  Our friendly and knowledgeable staff will be happy to assist in any way they can.

All our activities are free, so please drop in to see us. You will always be welcome.




Baby and Toddler Group

There are plenty of activities, toys and books for you and child to explore, and we finish off the session with a singalong to all your children’s favourite nursery rhymes!


Baby Club

Our Baby Club is a safe and vibrant space for babies to explore their environment and play with toys and activities aimed at stimulating their developing senses and motor skills. 

5-a-Day Promotion

We all know how important it is to have our 5-a-day but we also know how difficult it can sometimes be to persuade small children to eat fruit and vegetables. Our trained Outreach Worker has lots of tips and ideas to help tempt your child. Feedback from parents who have attended  a  promotion session has been very positive, with children now being more adventurous and more willing to try new, healthy options.

Stay and Play

Our busy Stay & Play session is  open to all parent/carers with a child between the ages of 0 – 4 years. The session provides an opportunity for parent/carers to play with their child, get to know others with similar age children and benefit from the advice and support of our trained Outreach and Family Support staff.

Messy Play

This session offers children, and adults, the opportunity to “get messy” and experience the fun of playing with sand, water, paint, play foam and a host of other messy materials that you may not have space to provide at home.
