The group offers to support children with manging emotions and expressing themselves.

The group provides a nurturing environment that will offer a safe place to explore different topics related to emotional health and well-being.

On completion of the programme the children will hopefully have grown in confidence, self-esteem and developed strategies to manage their behaviour.

The group is for children who would benefit from support to help manage their emotions and express themselves. Children with low self-confidence and self-esteem or children who are presenting with anxious behaviours.

The groups are delivered in a friendly, nurturing environment with fun activities that will explore different topics related to emotional health and well-being, aiming to promote confidence and self-esteem and develop strategies to manage their behaviour.

For young children with special educational needs and disabilities.

The group provides a safe space for improving communication skills, self-confidence, life skills and self-esteem in the group.

Throughout the session we have lots of interactive activities and games to play. We will also have a craft activity for the children to do throughout the week to then bring back to group for a show and tell.

The programme is dedicated to all children who are living with or who are survivors of domestic violence and abuse. The programme is targeted specifically at primary age children who are often the hidden victims of abuse.

A supportive course for women, to increase their self confidence, to feel empowered and make positive changes in their lives and relationships. This group will provide a safe space for women to come together to share experiences, learn about keeping safe, how relationships impact on children and promoting positive wellbeing.

Baby massage offers a special one to one experience for both parents/carers and baby through the use of massage and reflexology techniques.

Baby massage has many proven benefits, such as; aiding digestion and relieving some reflux and colic symptoms, as well as improving babies sleep patterns.

The class sizes will be small and delivered in centre, with qualified members of staff for gentle guidance over a five week course. 

Incorporating the Hungry Little Minds Campaign for early years development, the group creates opportunities for parent and baby interaction and bonding.

Our group leaders will help parents and  carers to build confidence in playing with children to aid stimulation, communication and development through Chat, Play and Read. We will also cover important topics such as ICON, safer sleep, infant feeding and weaning, and home safety.

Triple P—Is a parenting programme, but it doesn’t tell you how to be a parent. It’s more like a toolbox of ideas.

You choose the strategies you need. You choose the way you want to use them. It’s all about making Triple P work for you. The three Ps in “Triple P” stand for “Positive Parenting Programme”.

We offer the following Triple P Programmes:

Group Triple P (parents of children 0 to 12)
Teen Triple P (parents of teenagers 13 to 19 years)
Stepping Stones Triple P (parents of children 0 to 12 years with SEND)
Lifestyles Triple P (parents of children aged 5 to 10 years wanting to have a more positive and healthier life)

We offer two transitional groups for children either starting Primary School, or Secondary School that need extra support during their transition.

These are both programmes focusing on school readiness.

This 6 - 8 week programme will incorporate Chat, Play and Read, music and rhyme, and will help to prepare children age 2 to 5 years for entering a school environment for the first time. We will be delivering a variety of activities for children and parents to engage in play that develops the child's growth, speech and language, learning and social skills.

Stepping Up (Year 6 children)

This is a 8 to 12 week programme. The group is for children starting Secondary School in September, who may have worries about starting big school and need extra support in preparation for their transition. We will cover topics such as  making new friends, settling in to a new environment, practical preparation, scenarios in school, bullying, emotional support, and building resilience and  confidence ready for September.
