Kennet Walk Community Building
Dingley Family & Specialist Early Years Centre
Dingley Family & Specialist Early Years Centre provides a place where children from birth to five years with special needs and disabilities come to develop skills through therapeutic play. "My daughter is accepted just the way she is, there are safe places for her to go if she is feeling vulnerable and lots of play choices when she feels interactive and happy" It is also a place where their parents and carers are welcomed, where they can make friends, share experiences and learn parenting skills. Qualified staff plan specific programmes tailored to each family's needs. The child's development is nurtured through therapeutic play and the group works in partnership with parents, carer and health care professionals. "Dingley provides an excellent resource for children and families with additional needs, it's a friendly and welcoming atmosphere with a willingness to adapt accordingly"
