Beatlie Child Development Centre

For children with complex developmental difficulties, having assessments at Beatlie School’s child development centre can sometimes feel a little bit stressful and scary.

Staff at the centre wanted to help children and their families to be as relaxed and comfortable as possible, so they feel able to fully be themselves during a visit.

Thanks to donations from our wonderful supporters, the centre’s outdoor space now features a large rubber play surface, a sun shelter, interactive play panels and colourful, creative toys, bringing fun and distraction and making everything feel that bit more familiar.

Incorporating play means assessments now seem less clinical and are therefore much more enjoyable for children like Charlie and their families.

With special thanks to New Park Education Trust for making this project possible.
