My child finds it hard to settle / be still in a group environment - is the group suitable for them?
Absolutely! We aim to provide a welcoming, nurturing environment suitable for all children. Many children find it difficult to settle in the first few sessions but our structured and understanding approach means that almost without exception children are able to integrate and participate within the groups. Groups are carefully structured to balance children's needs and abilities and all activities are carefully differentiated to be accessible to everyone in the group.
