Skylarks Friday morning session in term time

9.30AM to 12PM
Skylarks @ The CrossWay Centre, 306 Richmond Road, East Twickenham. View map

Skylarks runs vibrant and fun play sessions for children with additional needs and their siblings, facilitated by trained volunteers, all of whom have direct personal or professional experience of children with additional needs.

The children can make new friends and have fun playing with a variety of toys. They enjoy art activities, story telling and musical activities led by a professional musician and our volunteer singers with props, Makaton signing and percussion instruments enabling the children to participate.

Friday morning sessions are aimed at pre- school age children but all ages are always welcome.

Also on Friday mornings, parents can book their children into our creche while they get advice and information at a range of workshops and clinics on-site.

Children can also take part in activities such as developmental yoga on Friday mornings and can sometimes get their hair cut at our Friday morning sessions.

Skylarks wants to enable the children to make new friends, and learn to interact with other children and adults to help prepare them for starting school. With the many play opportunities, we help them develop their sensory and manipulative skills. We help them express themselves with words and signing as we use visual aids, sign language and a slower pace for the children to understand our story telling and music based activities. Overall at Skylarks, we aim to see an increase in the confidence and self esteem of children with additional needs and their siblings.
