Pure Living Collection

Pure Living Collection is an online store that sells a fabulous range of luxurious duvets, pillows, mattress protectors and associated bedding products. This website offers invaluable advice on the most appropriate bedding available for children.

Children just love the feel of the soft light-weight, hypoallergenic Spundown Duvets. Mums love them too, for this is the award winning duvet that just loves to be washed, time and time again. For summer the 3.0 tog Pure Cotton Duvet is a popular choice of children’s duvet as it will help your child maintain a regular temperature on warm summer nights.

The polyester hollow-fibre filling of the Anti Allergy Duvets and Pillows contain material in which house dust mites cannot live, thus playing a major role in helping to relieve allergies caused by them. Alternatively, the Anti Allergy Duvet, Pillow and Mattress Protectors all provide an effective barrier between your child and the dust mites and their allergens.

Pure Living Collection also offers some pillows with slightly less filling and therefore perfect for smaller shoulders, whilst waterproof mattress protectors offer their mattresses protection against those all too common accidents and spills.

11 plus specialists and small group tuition from Year 1 up to GCSE

Founded in 1988 by Anita Clemens, Rochester Tuition Centre has helped to secure over 3000 grammar school places. Personal recommendations account for over 90% of the centre's intake.

The centre specialises on 11 plus preparation for both Medway and Kent examinations, offering regular lessons, informal assessments and school holiday classes. Revision courses and formal mock assessments are available to registered and external students. These classes will be suitable for all children in top groups at school and for many of those in second or middle groups. Some parents believe their children have been misplaced in lower groups and we are always prepared to give our opinion and to see if we can help.

Although specialising in 11 plus preparation, we understand that 11 plus is not necessarily the best way forward for all children and many do join us just for general confidence building and skills. Our teaching method is by explanatory interaction not by rote. Arithmetical methods are thoroughly instilled for understanding so that problems become easy to solve. Children discover that “to learn” means “to find out” and “to try”. It does not matter if at first they do not succeed - errors and mistakes are a necessary part of the learning process. By encouraging curiosity pupils become interested in learning for themselves - something which is exciting and interesting rather than a “chore”.

Helping children with emotional & behaviour problems

Many children don’t want to, or cannot, talk about their problems. Play therapy is very effective for children aged 3 to 12. The child chooses from a range of activities in the play room. These include: drawing and painting, sand tray, clay, puppets, musical instruments, story-telling, role play. The Play Therapist focuses closely on the child, communicating using the media the child has chosen. Although of course, the child can talk about their problems, when they are ready, on average research shows only 8% of the session is spent in talking.

Between 73% and 84% receiving play therapy to Play Therapy UK’s standards show a positive change – the more severe the problems the higher the change. (Based on over 10,000 cases).

Because play therapy works through unconscious processes, it is important that practitioners are fully qualified and meet the highest standards of practice. Play Therapy is now regulated through the Professional Standards Authority’s Accredited Register programme. The PTUK Register of Play and Creative Arts Therapists warrants the quality and effectiveness of its Registrants. Using unregistered therapists can be dangerous.

Play therapy improves a child’s ability to learn and reduces the chance of adult mental health problems.

We are a London club that specialises in teaching 4-15yrs children skateboarding

With our highly trained instructors in a funky, cultural venue we aim to teach kids the basics of skateboarding, whilst allowing them to make new friends, learn skilful tricks, and maintain an interest in a type of exercise that is fun to do.

We focus on teaching children skate park skateboarding and street skateboarding and work to a wristband system which means children can earn different colour wristbands the more they do.

Skateboarding is particularly good for co-ordination and motor skills and as it crosses the midline of the body (Occupational Therapists recommend this for SEN needs because it strengthens core balance).

We run Weekend Beginner Sessions; Holiday and Afterschool Clubs; Skateboarding Parties and Private Lessons for individuals or groups. See website for dates and times.
