“My son Patrick who is 7 and has global developmental delay goes to KCA on a Saturday and during the school holidays.  Patrick really enjoys attending KCA. It means he can socialise with other children and take part in fun activities in a safe environment.

Patrick does not walk and has a much younger mental age than 7, so it is very difficult to find activities for him to participate in over the weekend and during school holidays. He gets bored and frustrated at home which can be stressful for us, his parents, so it’s wonderful that he can attend KCA and be stimulated. He is always happy when we pick him up and the staff are really friendly and supportive of his needs.

Places like KCA are so valuable to children with disabilities and their carers. The children enjoy themselves and the parents get a chance to have a break and/or spend time with their other children.”
