Marlow Opportunity Playgroup
Marlow Opportunity Playgroup provides a safe, caring, educational environment for children with special needs. We rely heavily on donations and fundraising to stay open and provide this scarce resource to our local community. We are run 3 hour sessions during term time and have over 40 children under 5 years old, on our register with a variety of conditions including Cerebral Palsy, Autism, Down's Syndrome, and a wide range of other physical, learning and medical disabilities. We desperately need to raise funds to provide more places for these special children - we are currently having to operate a waiting list as demand outstrips our funding. Please help by sponsoring our friend with their event.

On 25th September, I will be riding the L’Etape London to raise funds for Marlow Opportunity Playgroup (MOP).  MOP provides early intervention for pre-school children, most of whom have a broad and varied range of diagnoses including: Autism, Cerebral Palsy, Down's syndrome, visual impairments, speech and language delays, and various other genetic and neurological problems.

 Our son Oliver has been very fortunate to attend MOP since Jan 2015 and he has blossomed due to the expertise of the amazing staff.  MOP needs to raise more than £55,000 each year through fundraising and donations, in order to:

  • offer the high staff : child ratio so vital for providing the excellent care and support to every child.
  • provide all the necessary equipment.
  • deliver a wide variety of stimulating activities for the children.

MOP is the only special needs nursery in south Buckinghamshire and opens its doors to children with or without an EHC Plan (statement of special educational needs). For children without an EHC Plan, MOP needs to source funding to provide the care and education for that child.  

Thank you for visiting my page.
