We are also offering three longer sessions where your child will be required to bring a packed snack, lunch, drink and a hat. These sessions provide us with the opportunity to get to know your child and to observe them socially. The sessions run across a lunchtime and assist your child in managing a lunch box and lunch eating. They also have the opportunity for supervised play in the playground over a lunchtime with the ‘big kids’.
