Helping Little Hands Learn provides consulting, tutoring and support services for children with additional needs – from infants to teens. Our unique approach means each intervention and support package is tailored to individuals needs and motivations, learning and having fun along the way. We strive to build strong, trusting and lasting relationships, to advocate for the needs of the child/young person, and to help children/young people to reach their full potential.

Then March Pegs offers a place to bring your child/children to have a chat or just a chance to get out of your house!
March Pegs is a voluntary organisation which understands children with unique personalities or a child who has been diagnosed with a different way of thinking. In fact four of our volunteer helpers are parents of children with special needs and the other two volunteers have years of experience working with these children.
Seasonal themed activities are planned and supported by our volunteers so the children can join in if they wish or they can just free play. Let your child/children be themselves in a safe and entertaining environment.
