Additional Needs Club
Saturday 27th January 10:00am - 2:30pm
Bore Place holiday and Saturday club for young people with additional needs
Supported by Kent County Council, our holiday and Saturday club for young people provides a natural break for children with additional needs. The club is for 8-17 year olds living in Kent - parents/carers are not required to stay.
What happens on the day?
Activities are tailored to individual and group needs and include hands-on cooking, environmental arts, recycled art, brickmaking, den building, pond dipping, forest activities and gardening. All activities are led by our qualified team of tutors with experience teaching children with a variety of additional needs. The activities will be age differentiated and help to develop skills, confidence and self esteem appropriate to need and interests.
Parents or carers who want to know more please contact BeckyB@boreplace.org 01732 463255. If you are working with a young person and their family and think this might be for them, please get in touch too.
