Hackney Ark Resource Centre Weekly e-Newsletter

Welcome to the Hackney Ark “Resource Centre” weekly newsletter! We are here to keep you informed!

Sensory Play at Linden Children’s Centre

The sensory play sessions at Linden Children’s Centre will be starting again on Thursday 4th September.

The sessions run from 10-12 and from 1pm-3pm each week during term times.

We welcome all children but the sessions are especially useful for children with particular needs as they can be tailored to the child’s interests and needs. We focus on a high quality play experience for the child and the accompanying adult but we can also address learning targets. 

I am a very experienced, qualified teacher and I have been working in early years provision in Hackney for many years. The sensory paly sessions have received excellent feedback from parents and teachers.

Please pass this invitation on to others, parents don’t need to be referred, so please share this with them.
