Giving Tuesdays:

The programme encourages children with special needs to explore their world through play, express themselves and engage with peers. Play is important in the holistic development of children. Open-ended play gives voice to the child and allows for the development of 21st century skills, and encourages creativity, problem-solving, communication, collaboration and critical thinking.
