What Parents are saying about SMART 

“Amazing group!  My son (9) has ADHD, Autism and anxiety. He really struggles to go to activities. This is the first time he has really enjoyed himself at an activity. The staff are really experienced and understand his needs. He has grown in confidence and is learning to socialise”

“Lovely staff that know their stuff.  Staff passed on the highlights of their day every day, and my kids loved going. I  would highly recommend SMART to friends, and will defineatley be booking again!  10/10″

Parent (Summer holiday programme 2020)

“Greg was in a group that understood him and accepted him. For the first time in a long while I wasn’t anxious about what other kids would think of him or did i need to help him in any way. Because the staff also had experience of SEN or had SEN the same as Greg, It meant that I was relaxed about leaving him because I felt they understood him as much as I do. It meant that that bothof us were able to spend time apart and not feel anxious about it but instead enjoy it which is as it should be! ”

“It is really fun and you can make friends”

Alfie.T

Child

“Very energetic staff, involve each and every child. They listen to any issues that the children have, and they support any children that struggle, for example actions to songs. The teachers get alongside the children; they don’t just expect the children to know what to do. The older groups were in separate groups and the themes were appropriate to the ages”.

“Always use positive speech and constantly giving the children praise for their efforts. For children who had difficulties fitting in, socialising in these classes would be a real positive experience for them.”

“As a past student of drama school, I can highly recommend this group. After observing today, I can say that the smiles on the faces of the children show that they were hungry for more! Really amazing to see the joy on their faces”

“Really positive & encouraging session. My 14 year old daughter really enjoyed herself and is looking forward to her next session. We would be interested to hear about other fun activities and options”

“G came out a very contented and happy little boy – it’s a precious moment for me to know that G feels that he is somewhere where he belongs and that he fits in with his peers. As a parenet too, it is a wonderful feeling knowing that I can switch off as I know that he is in very capable care. Thank you for that xxx”
