This group aims to develop social and personal skills with the overall focus on encouraging future social inclusion. Play is an essential part of every child's life. We provide inclusive play opportunities for children in P3 and P4, which takes into account their individual needs and helps them to meet their full potential. Roots encourages the children to be independent. We do these things by providing a wide range of activities taking into account all areas of play e.g. physical, dramatic and imaginative play, play which stimulates the senses etc. All this seeks to help in children's physical, social, emotional, intellectual, creative and cultural development.

The club incorporates a varied programme to promote social, personal and emotional development. This is an open access club which takes place on a Tuesday night between the times of 6.30pm and 8.15pm.. Within this time anything between 4 to 8 activities are on offer including Arts & Crafts, cooking, sports, trips, drama and issue based sessions. The club is run in an open access style but children have to apply for a place. The child, and a parent/guardian are then invited in to meet with fulltime staff to share expectations, complete consent forms and receive a parent checklist for any activities.
