Bright Beginnings- Early years group
Come and join our exciting weekly early years online group “Bright Beginnings”.
Who is this for?
Our brand new weekly online early years group is a session for parents with blind or partially sighted 0–4-year-olds to drop in to enjoy the activities on offer, speak with specialists about various topics ranging from benefits to early movement, as well as meet and socialise with other children and parents.
What will we do?
These sessions are hosted every Monday from 1pm till 2pm, the perfect time to do something fun after lunch and just before nap time. We will have 4 distinct sessions running on rotation each month.
Let’s get moving
The first one is an interactive early movement session, in which we will have our amazing habilitation specialist Anna guide you through some fun movement songs and activities to get your child moving and aid in their development. After which Anna and one of our family practitioners will then be available for any habilitation and mobility questions which you might have plus learn from other parents and carers.
Sensory stories and benefits (grants and advice)
The second session involves bringing your child’s favourite stories and songs to life through a sensory stories’ session led by Inez. Inez will lead you through sensory adventures based upon popular stories and show you how to create your own sensory stories at home. This will be followed by Edyta our Advice and Benefits officer who will be on hand to answer any of your questions about grants, benefits and advice – what is DLA? What is my family entitled to? What support can we access?
The third session consists of sensory play and Nina & Claire, two of our family practitioners will create some sensory activities for you to join in with from home, all based upon our seasons. They will then answer alongside other parents and carers any questions you might have about playing with your child to aid their development.
The last session is music time bring some instruments and favourite song choices and join in with RSBC staff for lots of noisy fun! Afterwards, share your experiences with others and learn from other parents and carers, all supported by one of our family practitioners.
