Who We Are

Where fun and
socialisation meet

The Log Cabin Charity provides a setting where children and young people with additional needs or disabilities can socialise, grow and have fun alongside their mainstream peers. 

Children and young people with additional needs and disabilities often remain isolated from others and excluded from mainstream facilities. The Log Cabin Charity is inclusive, welcoming mainstream siblings and local children and integrating everyone so that they socialise together, make new friends and form friendship groups, regardless of ability and of whether they have emotional, physical, behavioural or learning disabilities.

Children come to After School Club, Holiday Playschemes and Weekend Club. 

The
importance
of play

Play is vital to the development of all children. It is essential for physical, emotional and spiritual growth and intellectual, creative and educational development. It helps children to develop a sense of identity, self-respect and confidence, and an awareness of their own worth and to acquire social and behavioural skills.

The Log Cabin Charity offers a stimulating range of activities, with a choice between indoor and outdoor play and opportunities for rest and quiet times. We have a policy of free play so that children can choose the activities they wish to participate in.

For further information see the Facilities page.

Early Years

Foundation Stage

(EYFS)

At the Log Cabin Charity, we work within the framework of the EYFS. The EYFS is statutory for every provider who cares for children aged five years and under; this includes out of school providers who cater for young children.

It is also good practice to know and understand the benefits the EYFS can offer to young children’s enjoyment, learning and development. Although out of school providers are not required to meet the learning and development requirement stated in the EYFS framework, the Log Cabin Charity are still required to meet the welfare requirements.
