Activities for children under 5

Activities for children under 5 years old with Special Educational Needs and/ or Disabilities (SEND)

We have put together a number of local activities that your child/children under 5's can enjoy. Use our SEND directory to look at what's available.

We review this constantly but are aware that new groups/clubs can pop up all the time and ask that if know of any that aren't on this list to please tell us so that we can add them in. 

Our local Odeon Cinema BH2 has special sensory friendly and inclusive showings for all, normally on a Sunday morning.

Children's centres have lots of fun learning and play activities for parents and children up to five years old.

We’re also lucky to have some great play grounds and activity parks in Bournemouth, some of these have special equipment for disabled children. Find out where they are, who they’re for and what’s there. 

Bournemouth libraries run activities and groups for people of all ages, find out if there’s something going on that you’d like to join in with at your local library.
