December 2019 Newsletter

It’s a busy time of year so we’ll keep this brief!

The Tailor Ed office will be closed from 5pm on Friday the 20th of December and reopen on Monday the 6th of January.  Please be aware that your Project Worker might not access emails and texts during this period but will get back to you once back at work.

Our December events are listed below including a change to our Time Twisters session (so it doesn’t clash with the big day) as well as the date for our New Year Party.

Wishing you all a very Merry Christmas,
Roo, Kate, Pete, Callum, Martha, Eva, Avril and Stuart.

Autism Friendly Play Session
Open to all children with ASN
Our regular autism friendly play session at Time Twisters will run on Wednesday December 18th from 4pm-6pm. (Time Twisters kindly offered to bring our usual session forward a week to fit one in this month.) Time Twisters is at Unit 5, Catalyst Park, 2B Bankhead Drive, Edinburgh EH11 4EJ.

Sessions are closed to the general public but siblings and friends are welcome to attend. Tailor Ed staff (usually Pete and Eva) will be present at these sessions and Pete runs a few group games for those who wish to take part.
Please be assured that there is extra upstairs seating available where numbers will be limited to ensure it’s a quieter space for those who need it.

These sessions now cost £2 per child (adults enter for free).
