FREE family sessions and activities to get you through the summer

If you're not going away this summer and staying closer to home, we have a range of free sessions, activities and resources to help you and your pre-schoolers occupied, engaged and having fun.

Everything we produce has been created and designed to be fun and engaging for your child and to help promote key areas of children's development such as speech, language, communication, health, wellbeing and creativity.

Some of our resources are for all the family while some sessions have been designed for parents to help you learn more about your child's development and how you can nurture it.
