Based on the LEAPing on with Language Curriculum, these sessions are run by Specialist Speech and Language Therapists, aimed to accelerate your child's spoken language learning.  They emphasise the use of language in groups to develop friendships and grow in self-confidence and self-esteem, with a positive balanced self-identity.  The children have lots of fun, try new activities, make new friends and meet up with old friends!

Sessions are held on Saturdays, and are split into two year groups i.e. School Years 1 to 3 in the afternoon and School Years 4 to 6 in the morning.

"I just wanted to take the time to thank you and your colleagues for the incredible amount of work you put into these events.  My daughter had a fantastic time and always raves about your planned activities.  All your hard work and support has helped my daughter gain confidence and is no longer conscious of her aids, which was a big problem in the past.  Well done to you and your team". (Parent).
