We're running two *FREE* after-school sessions at Merton Park Primary this Friday, 15th September.
At our play sessions, the children are in charge. They can run the trains, build the track, and sort out any problems. It builds their confidence, reduces their anxiety, and allows them to play for hours, while developing their social and communication skills.
