How to Enrol in Small Poppies
If you are interested in referring your child in Small Poppies, you are asked to complete an identification questionnaire and referral form. You will then be invited to a “Poppy Peek”. This is a 2½ hour, hands on session, based on the Small Poppies programme. This gives you and your child a “taste” of the programme and allows a Small Poppies educator to determine whether your child and the programme are a good fit.
