This was the first group to be set up. Started in June 2002, this group was setup to meet the needs of children from 5 to 7 of age. It has been identified that children as young as two years old are living in some form of caring role within the home. We also discovered that there are many younger children whose lives are severely affected by an older sibling with physical and mental disabilities.
This group meets at teatime on a Monday every 3 weeks. The children are provided tea which is followed by structured activities. These include arts n crafts, movement to music and team games.
The children are also given 'free play' time within the sessions to help them form friendships with children in similar circumstances.
