CHILDREN UNDER 5
At our PARC Centre, we offer a range of activity sessions for pre-school aged children under the age of 5. Each of these sessions are focused on play in a fun, safe and secure environment.
Under Ofsted regulations we follow the Early Years Foundation Stage (EYFS) which sets standards for the development, learning and care of children under the age of 5. We plan all our activities and sessions to encourage your child's development whatever their age, stage and ability.
By coming to PARC, you can gain a wealth of information and support from a network of experienced staff and parents.
Our managers and team leaders are highly qualified and experienced in working within the educational and play led field
of Special Educational Needs.
Our main Under 5's Team are:
Amanda Stewart - Under 5's Family Activity Club Manager
Paula Ross - Family Support Manager
All of our core staff, playworkers and volunteers offer a wealth of experience between them including expertise in the fields
of nursery and primary education, first aid and a broad range of additional needs.
1. STAY & PLAY
This gives you the opportunity to enjoy the facilities PARC has to offer with your child as well as meeting other families.
2. SHORT BREAK
If your child is 2 ½ years or above then you can leave your child through the duration of the session with a one to one carer.
