Early Years Services

The Colin Sure Start Early Years Team deliver a wide and varied range of programmes, suitable from birth, right through to the child’s fourth birthday. Our early years programmes are designed with our local families in mind, and our aim is to provide activities that can cater for all interests and abilities. 

At Colin Sure Start, we strongly believe that the parent is the most important educator in their child’s life, therefore, we strive to involve parents and carers in each programme we offer.

Our programmes include activities for babies from birth, such as baby stay and play and the ever popular aquababes and aquatoddlers.  Colin Sure Start recognises that early year's growth and development can happen quickly, therefore, our children and families can move onto weekly rhyme time sessions and daily parent and toddler activities as desired.   Transitions are seamless at Colin Sure Start, with many families progressing onto the Sure Start Developmental Programme for 2-3 year olds and Play 2 Learn development groups, both offered throughout the Colin area. 

You will find that inclusion and supporting families with children who have additional needs has a strong focus embedded in our Early Years Services.  We offer a range of drop off and parental involvement groups weekly, to cater for those families who wish to avail of this service.  This type of service is also perfect for parents who may have concerns or perhaps just queries, regarding their child’s learning and development.  Our Early Years management and staff work closely with a range of external additional needs agencies and organisations, to ensure that signposting is appropriate and timely.  Our Early Years and Speech and Language support teams continuously work in close partnership together.  This allows for professional speech and language therapy advice to be available for local families at their request.   

Colin Sure Start Early Years Services really do have something for everyone.

To become involved with us, simply come along to any of our non-booking groups, or contact our Early Years Coordinator on 90601417 for more information.
