Please complete the Initial Registration Form, which will help us to explore your child’s needs and if our club is suitable to meeting those needs;  if we feel we cannot offer the support your child needs we will discuss alternatives with you.  Once you have completed the Initial Registration Form, please make an appointment with our ADP Co-ordinator (contact details below). 

Wherever possible we try and provide safe transport for the children to the Centre & their return home.  The availability of the transport is dependent on spaces on our mini-bus.  We will discuss this with you at the induction meeting.
