To find out when the next Move Bounce Play sessions are taking place - please view our calendar.
We run Move Bounce Play sessions every month on a Saturday (dates vary). There are 2 sessions available: One session is ACTIVE and one is QUIET to suit different interests and needs. If you are unsure which session will suit your child, please contact us.
ACTIVE Move Bounce Play - this session particularly suits children aged 9 years+ who are extremely active and energetic.
QUIET Move Bounce Play - this session particularly suits children aged 8 years and under who maybe active but can explore and bounce in a slightly calmer setting. This session also suits older children who prefer a quieter environment.
We also run a general Move Bounce Play session on Friday afternoons during some school holidays - this is open for all who attend the ACTIVE or QUIET sessions.
This activity is for children and young people with disabilities and additional needs. (Aged 4-16 years). The key activities are Trampolining, Rebound Therapy, Air Track and Coordination & Balance Development.
The sessions cater for children and young people with varying needs with a specific focus on Autistic Spectrum, Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder and Learning Disabilities. However we welcome children and young people who have different needs to this including physical and sensory disabilities.
The activities are open for siblings to attend and parents/carers do stay for the duration of the session. We provide a room with refreshments so if your child is able to participate independently they can do, alternatively parents can support their child and enjoy watching them participate in a safe and fun environment. We enjoy meeting families and welcome interaction from parents where appropriate.
Please note: We do recommend that you contact us prior to your first visit so you can share with us some information about your child that will help their first session go smoothly.
Unfortunately due to the nature of the activity children and young people with the following medical conditions are not able to access the trampolining or rebound therapy element of the session. However we would encourage you to contact us so we can discuss the activities your child may be able to take part in.
