Colin Sure Start partner with W5 in exciting new project!

25th Jan 2019

We know how important play is for children - in discovering things about their world, about colours, weight, texture, volume, shape. And play is so important for developing imagination, curiosity, new ideas and ways of thinking. The 'science' of our world begins with play in the Early Years!

So we are really excited to be a part of a new project working with W5 in bringing these kinds of play experiences to children in Colin Sure Start.

On January 23rd 2019 a few of our families took part in the launch this project which includes a brand new book called the Dragon from the Lagan!

This is an exciting story about how a little dragon goes through Belfast to visit W5, with lots of exciting adventures along the way!

We have been working with together with W5 and Translink on this new project that they have been developing for over a year now. W5 will be coming out to deliver activities and projects in some of our groups, and our Developmental Programme for 2-3 Year Olds will also be going on a trip to W5 on a Glider at the end of the project!

This is just the beginning and we are hoping to work with W5 going forward to see how we can support many more of our families to benefit from the play experiences in W5
