Yeovil Opportunity Group

Working with children and families who have a variety of additional needs, we offer time and space and many years of experience to help all children and families achieve their individual goals.

The Opportunity Group has a clear duty of care, embedded in the very beginnings of the Group, to offer appropriate therapy and learning through play to young children and to support their families within a safe environment, with skilled staff and multi-agency planning. In addition, the Opportunity Group offers a great location for the therapists, paediatricians and a range of multi agency professionals to engage with the children all on one site.

What is the Opportunity Group?

  • A specialist & highly trained team of staff with many years of experience
  • Children receive one to one Music Therapy
  • Our ratio of children to staff is 1:3, with most children receiving 1:1 support each day on their learning & development journey
  • As a charity, we are able to provide the high level of additional support by fundraising and through donations
  • On going individual and family support

 

Still leading the way in pre-school education for children and families with additional needs after nearly 50 years, Yeovil Opportunity Group was amongst the first of its kind in the country to offer specialist support. It was founded by a paediatrician and a social worker who saw the need for therapy and learning through play and family support for children with special needs, 0-5 years.

 

The Group can comsider taking any child, depending on theirs and/or the family's level of need. You don't need a referral to attend, however referrals can come from general practitioners, health visitors, paediatricians, physiotherapists, occupational therapists and speech therapists as well as other pre-schools and nurseries.

Yeovil Opportunity Group operates as a voluntary, committee run specialist pre-school provision and is a registered charity

 

A unique Pre school dedicated to giving children and families extra help and support though the early years learning journey
