LEAPS Suffolk - Saturday Clubs and Holiday Clubs

Holiday Scheme

LEAPS Suffolk is an Ofsted registered provision.  We currently offer two fortnightly Saturday Clubs for children and young people with Autism, ADHD and additional needs.

Our first club is for children aged 5 – 11 years, and runs from 9 am – 12 pm.

Our second club is for young people aged 12 – 20 years, and runs from 1 pm – 4 pm.

We also offer a Holiday Club for children and young people age 5 - 20 years from 9am - 4pm. Dates will be displayed on the website and Facebook when confirmed

We offer a wide range of activities and experiences that help to promote important life skills such as problem solving, decision making, managing emotions, independence, and social skills etc. Some of the activities include cooking, arts and crafts, Lego, Knex, puppets, trains, marble runs, singing, dancing, music making, dolls, action figures, table tennis, air hockey, table top games and sensory play. We also have access to a small sensory room and two lovely outdoor areas where we can play on the climbing equipment, play team games or even just go for a walk.

The dedicated team at LEAPS Suffolk have a wealth of knowledge and are experienced in their practice related to the varying needs children may have. We offer different levels of support, recognising that some children may need more support than others at different times.  This includes supporting a child on a 1:1 basis. 

Our overall aim is that everyone who attends our club feels that they can be themselves, and that they go home happy and want to return next session.

Please feel free to check out our website or Facebook page for more information or for pictures of what we get up to, and if you have any questions then do not hesitate to contact us on the contact methods below.
