Funded Sessions

Working in partnership with Children's Centres and Pre-school Service Providers

Ragdolly Annas work in partnership with Children's Centres, Pre-school Settings, schools and organisations supporting young adults with learning difficulties providing a tailor made service to each one allowing them to meet their own objectives.

Children's Centres

All of our sessions (Music and Rhyme, Non-Movers and Craft) can be provided with a range of funding options to suit all budgets from fully-funded allowing targeted families to access key services to fully managing part-funded 'outreach' services to enable you to spread your services across your catchment reach without impacting your staffing levels and providing families with a subsidised admission fee.

Pre-Schools, Nurseries and Toddler/Baby Groups

For nurseries and other pre-school groups we can offer our Music and Rhyme and/or Craft sessions on an adhoc or regular basis to support your obligations to follow the curriculum and meet with your objectives.  Why not offer your new parents the opportunity to attend a Non-Movers session within your setting. Either funded or part-funded by you or for an admission fee.

Charities and Organisations supporting those with learning difficulties

We are by no means experts in the special needs or learning difficulties field but we are experts in providing our customers with what they want.  We have proven that given minimal guidance we can create session plans to support your objectives for your learners and run effective, enjoyable sessions for a range of abilities.  We currently work with young adults up to 19 years of age but this is by no means our limit. Contact us for more details.

Service Provider Feedback

Don't just take our word for it, here is some feedback explaining why Ragdolly Annas are also a great service provider choice...

Ragdolly Annas have been fully flexible in their approach with the people we support. They have tailor made session plans for us which truly fits in with our ethos and our curriculum. The feedback sent each week is brilliant and so useful to use for evidence. The learners are so engaged in the sessions and really enjoy them.

Beth Payne, Programme Co-ordinator MacIntyre - No Limits

Ragdolly Annas have a high level of understanding of the Children's Centre Agenda, so partnership working is easier. They are happy to promote other CC services and encourage registrations whilst being flexible in delivery of sessions to accommodate the needs of individual Centres. They are professional, reliable and exceptionally well organised and provide good value for money. Their service meets Core Purpose: Child Development/School Readiness and Health and Family Wellbeing. They are happy to adapt session plans to fit in with individual Centre's planning. They are excellent for outreach, as willing to do registrations and attendance sheets.

Jane Webb, Children's Centre Co-Ordinator from the from Little Owls Centre at Oxley Park, Milton Keynes

I have found that Ragdolly Annas are flexible to accommodate the Centre's needs and support in developing our service delivery in the Oldbrook area. By having the session each week it has allowed us to extend our service delivery in Oldbrook and build our relationships with the local community and the School, (where the session takes place). Since the session began in January we have a core group of families that have been regular attendees who live in the local area and their children have benefitted from attending by learning new songs to develop their language and to interact with other children to develop friendships. Some of our families that attend the session have also attended some of the other session’s Ragdolly Anna's do in other Centre’s We will now be beginning our third term with Ragdolly Anna's and will continue to do so.
