Swings & Smiles offers play sessions for children with special needs and their whole family at our centre in Thatcham. We have specialist play resources to enable children with a wide range of disabilities to play with siblings and other family members in a secure and safe environment.

We provide many opportunities for play, cooking, art, sport and much more. We have a personal care room and space to eat if you want to bring a picnic with you. Our garden is totally secure and the building is on one level. There is also a totally separate and fully equipped area for siblings to be able to enjoy some time for themselves.
