The Pines, 67 Chester Road, Hazel Grove, Stockport, SK7 5PE
The Children and Family Centre provides inclusive play opportunities in a safe and welcoming environment for children with learning disabilities and additional needs. Through its wide range of groups, play sessions and SEN training courses, children can learn and play while parents can access a wide range of information and support. We tailor both the support and the groups to the children’s individual needs and ensure that numbers of those attending the groups are kept low to ensure each child gets the attention they deserve. The groups are all family based, with parents and carers joining their children for sessions.
Along with the indoor space which features plenty of toys, games and crafts as well as lots of sensory equipment, The Centre also has a large garden. The outdoor space is fully secure, and there are lots of outdoor toys, games, and play equipment available.
The Children and Family Centre is unique to the Stockport area with its strong ethos of reverse inclusion. This means that we welcome all children, including siblings and friends to The Centre when it is appropriate, but those with additional needs and disabilities take priority.
