Step and Learn is open between Tuesday and Friday for pre-school children 0-5 years.
Babies and children attend with their parent or carer for sessions that last for one hour once a week. All these sessions focus on activating the child through programmes that are appropriate to the particular group and the individuals within it. Working in groups develops the young child’s social skills and provides an environment in which the parents can benefit from mutual support.
Parents continue to learn how to transfer the skills learned by them and their children into daily activities at home.
Early intervention is vital as the children develop much more quickly in the early years.
Step and Learn is open on Saturdays for children aged over 5. The groups are aged and ability based with sessions lasting up to two hours.
Sessions help the child to develop a range of skills that other children of their own age might take for granted.
A positive and pro-active approach is adopted by Step and Learn. We encourage a child to say, “I can” rather than saying “I can’t”. We respect and value parental contributions and put them at the forefront of their child’s development, helping them to adopt the programmes for use in the home, turning the skills learned into a meaningful array of abilities that will help in their everyday life.
Accessing our sessions
We operate on a self referral basis and it is not necessary for your child to have a diagnosis in order to access our help. We invite anyone who contacts us to for an assessment where we can ensure that providing sessions will be in your child's best interests. Please email firstname.lastname@example.org to enquire about an assessment.
