Early Years Funded projects for pre school children with additional needs

Monday’s 1.30pm to 3pm
Liz Atkinson Children Centre

25th April, 9th, 16th, 23rd May

 This project is funded by Lambeth Early Action Partnership. Our funding will end in early June but we hope to be successful with a new funding application so we can continue the exciting work that we have established to date.


ELEVATE

Exploring the creativity and well-being of preschool  SEND children and their families.
 
This project is open to all families living in Lambeth with a pre-school child with additional needs. An official diagnosis is not required.
 
On Sat 9th April Whippersnappers launched our new Early Years SEND project funded by Lambeth.
 
We held a Funday at the Livity school and 14 families with SEND children attended.
 
There were plenty of fun activities for the children, their siblings and grown-ups. Art activities included painting, mark-making, felting, clay and messy play. Yasmin and musical Emily ran music sessions with Makaton and PECS demonstrations. Katherine performed an Anancy story at lunchtime and Maggie ran some  Makaton training sessions for parents. The bouncy castle was a big hit as was the bubble show from Party Tree.
 
Here is some of the wonderful feedback from families attending:

COMING SOON:

Working in partnership with Better Start Lambeth Norwood and Streatham we will be delivering Music and Messy play sessions in local Children’s Centres.

We will be announcing our summer timetable in the next few weeks and hope to deliver some sessions at “Hillside Gardens One O’Clock Club” as well as providing trips out and sessions for children with complex health needs at Brockwell Lido.

There will also be opportunities to make a large patchwork art piece, a film and get involved in a research project.

Our next Funday at The Livity school will be Sat 28th May from 2pm to 5pm.

Holiday Activities and Food Programme

During the  Easter holidays, Whippersnappers provided an inclusive playscheme setting for 8 to 16 years olds who are eligible for free school meals. The aim of the project was to promote being active and healthy during the school holidays. The young people were given an opportunity to make their own lunch, enjoy trips outs and use Brockwell Park and Fusion Lifestyle facilities for plenty of physical activities.
