Active Zone started in November 2001 and provides daily care for school aged children with a learning disability. Active Zone operates daily (except Thursdays) from 3.30pm – 6pm. The after school club caters for 5-18year olds and provides fun activities on site as well as the children having use of the sensory room, playground and soft play room.
The children are collected from Castle School in Newbury and escorted back to The Mencap Centre. Children from other schools are welcome but need to be brought to the centre for 3.30pm.
The children that attend the after school club have a one to one volunteer carer from local schools who assist the children in daily activities and encourage play and social interaction.
Please contact the children’s team if you would like any information on your child attending or to volunteer
