The Education Centre for Children with Down Syndrome
The Education Centre was originally set up in 2005 as a branch of the Down Syndrome Educational Trust, by new parent and teacher Maggie Hart, because she felt that the work undertaken by the Trust would benefit her own son and other children like him in the North East of England. In July 2006, the Education Centre became an independent charity, to enable access to additional funding sources.
The centre runs an Early Development Group for pre-school children and their parents, weekly during term-time (36 weeks per year). In September 2006 they launched a new School-Age Group for 4-11 year old children. These sessions are run in Darlington, but they also take children from surrounding areas including the rest of County Durham, Tyne & Wear, Teesside and North Yorkshire.
