Cirencester Opportunity Group is an independent charity providing specialist integrated education to meet the varying needs of Nursery and Pre-School aged children and providing support for their families. We have a child-centred approach and have been providing enriching and stimulating learning experiences to generations of children for more than 40 years.

Our constitution states that 51% of children who attend the Group must have a special need or a disability. Children who come to us have a range of needs including: Autism Spectrum disorders, Down’s syndrome, cerebral palsy, global developmental delay, genetic disorders and speech and language difficulties. Several of our children are growing up in deprived environments and challenging circumstances. We are the only group of its kind in the area and are widely respected by local health professionals, such as health visitors and social workers who refer many children to us.

We serve the town of Cirencester and the surrounding villages within a 15-mile radius and we endeavour to help all children reach their potential and prepare them for school life.

 The services we provide:

  • Speech and Language Therapy
  • Music Therapy
  • Home cooked meals at lunchtime to ensure that all children eat a healthy meal
  • Soft play facilities
  • Forest School which provides a safe place for children to explore freely
  • We run a programme of weekly sessions for parents
  • Parent and toddler groups
  • Parenting classes and craft sessions.
  • Outreach Family Workers to help families with both practical and emotional matters offering one-to-one support, home visits and advice

We are are extremely grateful for all of the donations that we receive to support our vital work wih children and families, thank you.
