About us

What do we do? •We are a specialist preschool (children aged 2-5) offering 1:1 or 1:2 adult to child ratio care and education for children with additional needs. •Staff are clinically trained to deal with any specialist medical needs our children might have. •We run a stay and play ‘Rabbits’ session for children (aged 2 and under) their carers and siblings. •We provide information, support and training to families and other pre-school settings either in our Chippenham centre or as part of an outreach program. •We are a ‘hub’ for external professionals e.g. speech and language, physiotherapy, community paediatrician etc. Children can be seen by these professionals at Springboard in an environment that they are familiar with, reducing the need for lots of separate hospital and clinic visits. •We run a monthly group ‘Saturdads’ which aims to support and include dads, other male carers and siblings. •In the school holidays we run stay and play sessions for the whole family and independent holiday club sessions to provide parents with respite care or some much needed fun for the children in a safe learning environment.
