Drawing the attention of young people and children is important to the charity: their input allows us to tailor design youth services for the young people in our community.
Currently the Boghall Drop in Centre delivers the following services aimed at children and young people. If you are interested in any of these clubs please email firstname.lastname@example.org for the children clubs and email@example.com for the Little Monsters.
The Little Monsters
This is a parent/carer and under 5 play group. This group uses play techniques and materials to allow parents to replicate the sessions at home. Sessions are based around fun themes that stimulate the child's development and encourage the parent/carer to meet others. These sessions are currently available several times a week. The families must be registered and be on the rota to attend.
As this is a very popular service the group was divided into 3 different sessions. The categories were decided on by the children who attend.
These clubs cost 50p per child. The age groups and times are as follows.
Primary 1 to 3 is on at 4pm and finishes at 5pm
Primary 4 to 5 is on at 5.30pm and finishes at 6.30pm
Primary 6 to 7 is on at 7pm and finishes at 8pm
These sessions are also designed from input from the people who attend them.
Friday Youth Club
This is a child led club that works with the young people who attend to design the activities that are available to pupils in secondary education. This club is free to attend for anyone in West Lothian in this age group. All young people must be registered to attend.
