Flying Start Talk and Play groups give parents the chance to get together and support their child's language and development through playing, singing and fun activities. The Talk and Play Team can also offer extra support to children to get them off to a flying start in life.

They are a fantastic way of supporting children to socialise and for parents to make new friends and share hints and tips.
