Sign-a-long Fun

31 May 2023

Our Pre-Schoolers parents told us that they are keen to learn more sign language which is used as a communication aid whilst our children's speech is developing.

As a result of the kind donations received recently, we were able to purchase some Signalong resources for our parents to use whilst at our Pre-Schoolers Groups.

We are extremely grateful for all donations made that mean that we can provide the support our families ask us for.

World Down's Syndrome Day

18 March 2023

We celebrated World Down's Syndrome Day in style with a joint party with our West Dorset friends, Shine21.  We danced, played games, made balloon models, bounced on the bouncy castle, played in soft play and ate.

Events like this bring our little community together ensuring that all our families know where they can turn to for help and advice.
