Monthly activities for 2-5s

Every second Saturday of the month we are running fun, therapeutic virtual activity sessions for PACT adopted children aged 2-5 years. These sessions will take place on Zoom and are a great way for children to have fun, meet others who were adopted and for parents and children to learn some of the therapeutic value of the activities chosen.

We are also running a live activity event in Reading during October half term with activities for ages 3 up to 12. More details can be found below.

Come and join us! Parents who attended activities before with their children said:

“Thank you so much for the lovely session today”

“Thanks so much that was great, [child] really enjoyed himself”

Please note: these sessions are for PACT families only. Places are free but booking is essential. To book a spot, email Megan Ravenhill at adoptionsupport@pactcharity.org and let her know which activities you are interested in.

The age ranges indicated below are based on the required skill level, but we welcome children of other ages to join in if you feel they would enjoy the activities. Parents are required to attend with their child/children. Please book early so we can send you details of any required materials.

About Dan

Daniel is currently studying at Guildford School of Acting in Surrey and has appeared in a number of films, musicals and stage plays, including touring plays and workshops around schools. He lives with his family who adopted his brother when Dan was eight years old and his brother was six, so he has first-hand knowledge of growing up with an adopted sibling.
