This is a free service offered on a Monday evening and Saturday morning term time only for children and young adults 10 plus.
The session is held at Meriden Park, Chelmsley Wood. Open to the general public, the adventure playground enables local children to enjoy outdoor play in a secure environment.
This facility is open to the public and is a secure outdoor play area for the local community. Due to this, this project enables children to access an activity alongside their mainstream peers and family with the full support of our well trained support workers to offer arm’s length support when needed in a safe encouraging environment.
The area is supported by staff who are paid by the local authority to supervise the various activities. These include imaginative play, den building, outdoor cooking over open fires, and water & sand play, as well as large construction. The SoLO staff ensure that the children are able to get involved and contribute at their own level and interact successfully with the other children.
The playground is open until dusk and allows the children to experience playing in low light (the staff wear head torches to ensure that they are able to supervise safely). They are also enabled to experience wet weather conditions.
