What activities do we offer?
We run a wide variety of sensory sessions which include messy play, crafts, sensory stories, Forest School skills and much more! All our sessions help children find new ways to connect, communicate and play with their parents and carers, and with other children.
We provide support during term time through targeted support programmes and standalone weekly play sessions so families can choose what support works best for them. We also run Family days throughout school holidays to enable families to have fun together and experience new opportunities.

What people say about Connect and Play
“We love the fact every activity that is set out is accessible to my child. We also love how friendly, welcoming and engaging the staff are. The sessions are also very fun, stimulating and educational at the same time.”Sonia, Siyana’s mother
