SureStart Developmental Programme for 2-3 Year Olds

The SureStart Developmental Programme for 2-3 year olds is a targeted programme, for those children most in need and who would benefit from additional support in the year before they start nursery or pre-school.

The group runs Monday, Tuesday and Wednesday at 2 ½ hours per session.

Parental participation is a vital part of the Programme. Parents attend monthly Parent Interaction days and Speech and Language training to support the developmental needs of their child.

  • Suitable for:Children who are 2 yrs old on or before 1st July on the year of entry to the programme.
  • Duration:7½ hrs per week – Sept–June

We can’t believe how much the twins have come on since the start of the year. We are so pleased they had the chance to go to Sure start to play and learn. Beth has much more confidence and loves socialising now. Rachel has learned to share and take part in a group and they both love going to see wee friends. Thank you for all your work.
