Play development and early learning programmes



This is our additional needs group. It is open to children age 0 – 3 years old, who may require a little extra support. It takes the format of Little Adventurers, where Parents/ Carers will stay with their children. The structured sessions allow children opportunities to play and develop their social and communication skills. We have input from local professionals and a higher Staff ratio, with lower numbers of children, to allow space to explore in a calm environment. Our sensory room is also open for use. 

Sensory Explorers

This is our sensory and messy play session. These are for children age 0 – 3 and run in all areas for 6 week sessions.

Little Movers and Groovers (2-3 year olds) We know how much your little ones enjoy dance, movement and action songs. So we have a new programme called Little Movers and Groovers! This is a 6 week programme for children that includes dance and action songs for physical development and songs to encourage Speech & Language.


Little Adventurers (0 – 3 years)

Parents/carers and children 0-3 years are welcome to these weekly drop in play sessions full of fun and creative play.  We offer a relaxed and informal atmosphere for you and your children to play. Children will have the opportunity for free play, arts and crafts, a healthy snack, songs and a story.
