Contact us about our funded sessions and fees.

The Session

We organise our sessions so that the children can choose from, and work at, a range of activities and, in doing so, build up their ability to select and work through a task. The children are also helped and encouraged to take part in adult-led small and large group activities, which introduce them to new experiences and help them to gain new skills, as well as helping them to learn to work with others. Outdoor activities contribute to children’s health, their physical development and their knowledge of the world around them. The children have the opportunity, and are encouraged, to take part in outdoor child-chosen and adult-led activities, as well as those provided in the indoor playrooms.

Snacks and Meals

We make snacks and meals a social time at which children and adults can eat together. We plan the menus for snacks and meals so that they provide the children with healthy and nutritious food. Lunch is prepared and delivered by ‘Forerunner’ who we work closely with to ensure all needs are met.

Please tell us about your child’s dietary needs and we will plan accordingly.
