A story by Stanmore Playscheme
We provided a playscheme 3 days per week during the Spring, Summer and October school breaks, and some special themed days for children and young people with additional support needs. Parents/carers enjoy their respite while their youngsters enjoy themselves in a safe environment.
Now in our 20th year Stanmore Playscheme provides appropriate fun and safe activities for youngsters who have additional support needs. It is administered by a small group of volunteers and staffed by experienced personnel during holiday breaks.
What Stanmore Playscheme did
This year we offered playscheme days 3 days a week during Spring, Summer and October break. We also had a few special days which had special themes.
Our environment is appropriate to meet the needs of our youngsters, physiotherapists and Occupational Therapy staff offer them individual sessions which ensure mobility and positioning allowing the youngsters to access their fun activities, music, sports, stories and arts and crafts in safety.
Trained staff including a health practitioner is always on duty. Local authority social work department can refer youngsters to our playscheme.
