Our Services

Sunbeams Play is registered to care for children and young people ages 5/6 (year 1) to 19 and recently added an additional group to support 16 to 21 year olds, extending to 25 through natural growth and development. We are open throughout the year; times vary according to term time, school holidays and age. Your child will be invited to attend a two week introduction period during the session appropriate to their age and ability. This enables us to get to know them thoroughly before they start and also for them to get used to staff, the environment and the other children and young people attending. At Sunbeams Play we recognise children and young people may develop at different rates and therefore group ages are a guideline. Through play, creative activities and key working, children and young people are supported to develop the skills needed to –

  • Communicate effectively, interacting with their peers, siblings and the wider community.
  • Socialise, developing friendships and an understanding of other’s needs, views, feelings and emotions.
