New! ASN Softplay Sessions at Tumbles in Portobello
Come along and try our new weekly softplay sessions for children with additional support needs at Tumbles Softplay Centre in Portobello. The sessions are every Saturday from 5:30pm – 6:30pm.
Play is an essential part of growing up for all children.
Regular play supports children to lead a healthy active life, encouraging their learning, developing their confidence and creating opportunities for them to develop friendships.At Edinburgh Leisure we believe that play is for everyone and we recognise that some children and families need more support than others to get active and stay active. For some children with additional support needs a busy softplay session might feel overwhelming.
Within our Tumbles Softplay centre in Portobello we’ve created a specific session for children with additional support needs.These sessions have been designed to provide an inclusive service for children with additional support needs. We feel the sessions will be appropriate for families of children with additional support needs, e.g. Autism Spectrum Disorders, Sight and Hearing Impairments, Global Developmental Delay, and Genetic Disorders.

- The sessions will take place every Saturday Afternoon 5:30pm – 6:30pm at our Tumbles Softplay Centre in Portobello
