Caterpilla Club: under 4s club for children with physical disabilities

The Caterpillar Club, part of Diverse Abilities’ Langside School, has returned following a break during the COVID-19 pandemic.

The club provides essential support and advice for children under four with physical and learning disabilities and their families. The Caterpillar Club is a fun, free, and friendly group, which gives parents the chance to meet other parents that have children with complex disabilities while children and siblings can enjoy a wide range of multi-sensory activities.

Families can attend and meet the school’s multidisciplinary team of nurses, physiotherapists, speech and language therapists, and occupational therapists to ask questions or discuss any concerns.

Nicki Priddle, assistant headteacher at Langside School and leader of Caterpillar Club, commented: “It’s been great to have families back at Caterpillar Club here at Langside School. It’s great for the children to experience the environment, and for parents to find out more about the equipment we use and the various educational techniques we employ to help children to develop their skills and achieve their potential.”

Weekly sessions are tailored and themed alongside the school’s bespoke curriculum including music, art, massage, sensory sessions, and stories.

Anya Payne, one of the parents who attend Caterpillar Club said: “This is the sort of group we’ve been looking for. It’s the most welcoming group we’ve been to and we felt at home straight away”.

If you’re interested in attending, email or call 01202 518635 to speak to Nicki and find out further details.
