Welcome to our half term newsletter! 

Some of our groups are taking a break for half term, but there's still plenty going on.

We are excited to be hosting our first Meet The Artist evening at 21 Co. tonight, it's not too late to book on.

We have an important Speech & Language Survey that we would really appreciate all families filling out by 28th May. 

There are also more Online Speech & Language sessions coming up this weekend.
