The Children & Family Centre
The Children & Family Centre provides play opportunities in a safe and welcoming environment for children with Learning Disabilities and Additional Needs. Through its wide range of groups, play sessions and training courses, children can learn and play, while parents can access a wide range of information and support. The Centre is an informal and relaxed space where children along with their parents and carers get to know each other well.
The Children & Family Centre is unique to the Stockport area with its strong ethos of reverse inclusion. This means that they welcome all children including siblings and friends to the Centre when it is appropriate, but those with additional needs take priority. The groups and support are tailored to the children's individual needs and ensure that the numbers of those attending sessions are kept low. By doing this, they can ensure that they provide more personalised groups and give each child the attention they deserve.
Along with the indoor space which features plenty of toys, games and crafts as well as lots of sensory equipment, the Centre also has a large garden. The outdoor space is fully secure, and there are lots of outdoor toys, games and play equipment available.
Groups and Activities include:
After School Club
Sing and Sign (0-4 years)
Sensory and Messy Play (0-4 years)
Weekend Boredom Busters
Parents Coffee Morning
School Holiday Clubs
Action for Sick Children are hosting another free playdate this year on Wednesday 1st August at Torkington Park. There will be accessible bikes to try and plenty of messy and sensory play activities.
