Play & Grow

Here at Colin Sure Start we recognise the parent as the child’s first educator. We believe that working together is the best way to help our little ones grow to meet their full potential. That is why we developed Play & Grow.

Play & Grow is an 8 week programme for parent/carers and their child to come together to learn tips & ideas on how to encourage their child’s development. It is specifically designed for families who have concerns about their child’s development in areas such as speech and language, physical development, attention & listening, behaviour, social interaction etc.

The programme is comprised of play and structured activities for the children as well as opportunities for parents to come together with sure start team members to learn more about development and how they can use this knowledge to plan goals for their children. Each week has a specific objective and participants are provided with take home resources which we hope will become their “cheat sheets” for supporting their little one with difficult things such as managing emotions and for ideas that will help their child flourish. We believe home practice and reflection each week will encourage positive change for both the parents and children.
