Easter Holiday News - 2nd April 2024

Welcome to our Easter Holiday Newsletter! We hope everyone has enjoyed the long weekend and wish you all a happy holidays. 

Many of our groups are taking a pause over the Easter break, but do have Sunflowers (Ages 2-8) this Saturday 6th April and Family swim at Bramley Baths and Football for ages 4-16 on 13th and 14th April respectively. 

Our normal groups will start up again on Monday 15th April. 

We are really excited about our new Siblings Group starting on 17th April, for siblings of those with Down Syndrome aged 8-16.

We are also once again running a Makaton Signing for Babies and Families course starting on 22nd April. This is aimed at those with children under 2 who have little or no experience of Makaton; please get in contact if you'd like to know more. 

The next date for our Speech and Language Opt-in Sessions is 21st April and bookings are now open. 

Our staff are working reduced hours over the Easter break but are still available via phone or email:
