Blandford Opportunity Group is a pre-school for all children, specialising in those with any additional need. The group opened in 1992 at the request of the Dorset Community NHS Trust professional staff.  We help children from Blandford and the surrounding areas.

We have specialist highly trained staff, who work on a one to one basis with the children.  Support is also provided for parents and carers.

The Williams Opportunity Hall is our home and we have excellent facilities, including a sensory room, IT equipment, butterfly room, a reading/music room and a fantastic outdoor space.

Rated Outstanding again in 2016/17 by Ofsted, from September 2016 we take ALL children.
