how we can help...

This can be a busy time as toddlers start to gain the skills they need to get ready for pre-school and primary school. Our services focus on play to encourage children to develop their creativity, problem solving skills, communication skills and sense of adventure.

This can be through coming to the Sure Start Developmental Programme of 2-3 year olds or the other play based activities. Our support to parents at this stage can build up strategies and ideas to help with sleep routines, toilet training, fussy eaters or temper tantrums.

Examples of services that we offer include:
