Each week the following sessions are provided during term time:
Parent and Child Stay and Play Sessions – For children aged 0 – 2 ½ years old who attend with their parents.
Parents have the opportunity to play with their children, learn how best to support and stimulate their development supported and advised by experienced staff and medical therapists. Parents can also meet and build supportive relationships with other parents who may be experiencing the same kind of situation and anxieties. Parents find they can benefit from the mutual support and friendship they experience during these sessions. Each child is allocated a Key-person who will spend time during each session to work on targeted play activities in order to support the child as well as provide information and support for parents to continue supporting their child at home.
These sessions are held on a Monday and Thursday morning, 9.15am – 11.15am
Pre-School Sessions - For children aged 2 yrs - 5 yrs who attend unaccompanied
These sessions provide children with the opportunity to play and learn within a fully accessible, stimulating environment, whilst benefiting from onsite therapy assessment and intervention, together with high levels of specialist teaching and adult support. Children are fully supported to access a wide range of activities and therapies which ensure children reach their full potential. Each small step a child achieves is fully celebrated and parents are strongly encouraged to share in their child’s learning journey.
For both of our sessions we have access to a Speech and Language therapist who will assess and provide information on how best to support each individual child for staff and parents. We also have access to health professionals who will attend the Centre and observe a child within the setting in order to maximise learning potential or meet any physical need the child may have.
There are a total of six preschool sessions available Monday to Friday. Allocation is dependent upon availability and by mutual agreement between parents and the Centre Manager.
