Description of activity
Yorda Adventures is a non profit charity, working with children aged up to 18 with severe learning difficulties. We work to support the children in their families, creating a safe and professional environment for the children of Yorda to play, learn, and enjoy being children. Our services include 1-1 care and support, weekend adventures away, holiday clubs and after school clubs. Each member of our staff understands the individual needs of each of the children and is trained to provide the highest standard of care.
We are based in Chessington, and our playhouse offers a huge range of activites and rooms to explore. These include, bouncy castles, a soft play room, a sensory room, creative and messy play spaces and a huge variety of books and toys. Outside the playhouse we have our garden area, complete with a sunken trampoline, a race track with adapted bikes and trikes and a basketball area. At the back of the playhouse we are lucky enough to have access to a forest area, where children are encouraged to play and explore with what nature has to offer, ranging from our mud kitchen to swings and climbing frames!
Please do not hesitate to contact us with any queries and questions!
