"Through structure and pushing the boundaries each week we saw a huge change in our son’s relationships with adults and other children. Asking our son about the experience he will tell you that he loves attending Tree Tops because it’s fun and exciting and he can wrestle with the bear in Reception."

"The Think Sensory Not Behaviour Training helped me to think of the underlying cause of many of the behaviours we see in Nursery and lots of positive strategies we can use to prevent them and support individual children.”

"I feel enormously inspired and passionate about implementing strategies to support a wide range of needs for children in our school. I'm excited to work alongside the Tree Tops team!"
