Step And Learn
Registered Charity Number: 1148686
Step and Learn is a charity dedicated to assist the physical and educational improvements of children with Cerebral Palsy, Global Developmental delay and associated motor difficulties. Our aim, like Andras Peto the Hungarian founder of Conductive Education, is to view the child holistically, educating and motivating the child through play to become active participants throughout their daily lives. Our early intervention programme for pre-school children from birth to five years incorporates the educational values of the Great British governments Early Years Foundation Stage (2012) principals and invites the parent/carers to be fully involved throughout their child’s learning process. We also run a Saturday programme for children from 5-15 years to continue their learning and development through fun activities.
Through play our children develop self-awareness, confidence, and a sense of achievement. Through songs they develop rhythm and intention to carry out physically challenging tasks, such as changing position and place. Our children are also encouraged to further develop their communication skills by speaking, eye-pointing, or through the use of touch.
Our team of dedicated professional practitioners will not only offer support and guidance to the child and family throughout the programme, but will go further by promoting collaboration between all professionals working alongside the child and family, to secure a continuity of care, in-order that the child reaches their full potential.
When we opened in 2012 we had 20 children whereas today (March 2018) we now have 54 children attending our sessions. Our growth has been tremendous and we believe more parents will be applying to bring their child along over the next twelve months.
