Children 3-5yrs

Our team of Outreach workers visit pre-schools in the local area (Alton, Bordon, Liphook and Petersfield) working with their children who need additional support:


  • working closely with the pre-school staff, offering advice, sharing knowledge and modelling strategies. 
  • working with the child in small groups or on a one to one basis.
  • meeting parents to share ideas and refer to other agencies for support if required.


We receive referrals either direct from pre-schools or through their Area Inclusion Co-ordinator.


As part of our Outreach work, we are able to offer TOP (Thomas Outreach Programme), a flexible intervention service for pre-school children with social communication or autistic spectrum difficulties. 

  • Where?  We support the child to learn both in their home and pre-school right through to the first term of Year R
  • How often?  Typically once a week. 
  • For how long?  Each child is given an allocated amount of time, depending on their situation.  This will be anywhere between 5-15 hours per week and includes paperwork, preparation and travel time for the TOP worker. 
  • Is it specific to them? Yes.  All teaching intervention is tailored to meet the child’s individual needs.
  • Do we need to a diagnosis?  No.  Children do not need a diagnosis to be referred to this programme
  • How do we refer?  Referrals can be made through a variety of Health professionals – for example Health Visitors, Speech and Language Therapists, Area Inclusion Officer or by contacting TOP staff direct.


Our Outreach Team are able to support children with a wide range of additional needs.  If you think we can help, or perhaps you would like more information, please...
