Early Years Project
Our Early Years project has been providing support to children and families across North Tyneside since 2012, funded by Children in Need. We support children to learn and develop through play, and bring families together.
Our groups and activities are designed for children from birth to 5 years who have learning and/or physical disabilities, communication difficulties, complex health needs or life limiting conditions.
We know that families often find it difficult to access mainstream services or opportunities for play and learning. Our support is inclusive and tailored to individual needs.
Our current activities include:
Weekly Mum & Baby and Mum & Toddler playgroups
Inclusive Sign & Play and Sign & Splash sessions
Water confidence in a hydro pool
Holiday activities and trips for the whole family
Support at meetings and liaison with health and care professionals
Support to attend community paediatrician clinics
Transition support into mainstream nursery/childcare settings
