WELCOME TO THE FOREST OF DEAN CHILDREN’S OPPORTUNITY CENTRE
Created over 30 years ago, the charity has is roots firmly based in supporting children with special educational needs and their families. Today the centre is for all children, giving those without additional needs empathy and appreciation for others, regardless of differences.
Here we value each child’s unique qualities. We provide care, support and facilities which enable all children to grow and learn together at our Pre-school , Holiday Playscheme and Stay & Play sessions. We exclude no one and can even help those without transport to access our facilities on our own minibus.
The outstanding skills of our staff allow us to provide specialist support where required. Early intervention is key to helping our children reach their full potential. We have established excellent working relationships with Physiotherapists, Speech & Language Therapists, Paediatricians and Health Visitors and Social Workers in Gloucestershire.
Our help extends to the whole family around the child, through support groups and workshops. It is an informal meeting place for parents and professionals involved in the care of children, from those at the beginning of a diagnosis to those that have diverse and complex conditions.
Our world is changing for the better, we are breaking down barriers for those with special needs, which is why our centre is for all children, learning and growing together.
