Tower Hamlets Opportunity Group

Tower Hamlets Opportunity Group was established in 1986. We are a playgroup and are a registered charity that provides a borough wide service situated in Tower Hamlets. We provide a playgroup for children from 2 to 5 and we are registered for 41 children per session.Our criterion is that 51% of our children have a disability/additional needs.

Playgroup session

Our playgroup session starts at 9:30am and ends at 12:30pm. If you arrive before this time we would ask you to remain in the reception area as we will still be setting up the children's activities. When you first attend our setting with your child you can stay with them during the session or you can leave them with our play practitioners. All of our play practitioners are qualified to NVQ Level 3 in child care. The activities your child will be participating during the session vary but we have listed some activities below:

  • Water play.
  • Messy play (using clay, paint, art materials).
  • Games and Puzzles.
  • Energetic play activities.
  • Make-believe play/dressing up.
  • Music and movement.
  • Sand/water/gardening activities.
  • Building/construction activities.

Transport & Escort Service

The purpose of this service is to provide access for disadvantaged families who have children with additional needs/disability or who are in need. By offering a transport and escort service it will allow children to attend playgroup and socialize with their own peer group, make new friends, have fun and learn and experience the exciting opportunity that our playgroup has to offer. Without such a service families who have children with additional needs/disability can find themselves isolated and unable to access playgroup due to not being able to drive, or their child may have severe mobility problems and would struggle to get them to playgroup by public transport or by walking.

The Transport and Escort Service carries out the following tasks

  • Tansporting children to the playgroup.
  • Transporting children from the playgroup back home.
  • Day trips.
  • Family/carer visits to playgroup, initial and settling in visits.
  • Transition visits.
