What Flying Start offers

The programme aims to provide intensive support services for children aged under 4 years old and their families. The focus of the programme is on promoting:

  • language skills
  • cognitive skills (such as thinking, understanding, learning, and remembering)
  • social and emotional skills
  • physical development
  • early identification of high needs

We do this through the delivery of health support and guidance, parenting support and groups and speech, language and communication support and quality part-time childcare for 2 to 3 year olds.

Flying Start is a multidisciplinary team, which includes health visitors, family workers, childcare staff, health visitors, speech and language therapist, early years teacher, health assistants and a team of dedicated support staff.
