Portage Early Education Support Service


The Portage early education support service is available to parents of children aged up to three and a half years with significant developmental or other needs. The portage teacher or support worker will work through activities with you, supporting you to help your child’s learning and development.

Through the portage service we also provide:

  • small group play and language development opportunities for children with Down Syndrome
  • specialist programmes for families with a child diagnosed with autistic spectrum disorder (as part of the National Autistic Society EarlyBird and EarlyBird Plus programmes)
  • the positive play programme for pre-school children aged two and upwards with significant behavioural difficulties.
