Boathouse for Children

Boathouse for ChildrenBoathouse for children, is a stage school for children with special needs from the age of 5 to 12 on a Saturday morning between 10.30 to 12.30. Siblings are more than welcome.

There is drama, dance, singing, and signing. The children have done three performances with one of them at the Pheonix Theatre alongside our sister group which is held on a Sunday for young adults.

Each year they do a Christmas show where all their families are welcome to come and watch.

Alex Upjohn heads up the sessions, Alex has experience in working with Children with special needs and creating drama sessions, Alex is a man of many talents and the children love being with him.. There are three to four helpers so the child supervison ration is good.

All staff are CRB checked and trained in helping children with special needs

After each session the children look forward to soft drinks and biscuits in the Cafe.

We meet during term time at Glyne Gap School, Bexhill-On -Sea.

Please note Parents/Carers are required to stay during the sessions, refreshments are available.
